We hald a week of prayer recently as part of the Archbishops' 'call to prayer' THY KINGDOM COME. Nationally it had a major impact on churches and congregations - and it has motivated us here at St Peter's to get more involved.

One of our Prayer Ministry organising team, Linda Farnhill said, "We are holding another prayer walking session on MONDAY 27th JUNE. We will start at 6:30pm and teams of about 3 people will go out into the Village and pray for whatever God lays on our hearts. Prayer walking is about being 'on the scene' without 'making a scene'. We hope to get children involved with this session too. They can go out with the teams. If anyone can't manage the walking, then they can pray in Church using visuals and prompts projected onto the main screen. We hope lots of people will join us."

Gildersome St Peter’s Church is a Christian community in the Anglican tradition which serves Gildersome, in South Leeds, a village with a population of about 5,000. The Church’s mission statement, which was drawn up by the congregation, is very short but describes our purpose: To know God, show God and share God.


What is a Christian?

This might seem a strange question to ask on a church website, but it's a question we're often asked. The rejesus website might help to answer this question and any others you may have.
