1. Poster with a link to the webpage is for your congregation and to display in your church. 

2. Poster which states that you are praying for the people of the parish and inviting prayer requests is for your church notice board.  Beside this poster you could display details about when the church is open for prayer and where people can find postcards to write down their prayer requests and leave them in the church.  If you have a church porch you could leave post cards and a prayer request box in the porch, or create something weather proof to stand in a visible place near the church entrance.

3. Poster to advertise Pentecost Service is to display in your church.

2 x Postcards: please order packs of 10 by March 26th

1. The postcard with prayer: ‘Oh Lord, send your Holy Spirit, that I may share the life of your Son and your love with those I know as I pledge to prayer for them’.

This is intended for church members and has space on the back for them to write down five people they are going to pray for, as well as the mission priorities of your church.  These could be given out during a Sunday service and everyone invited to fill them.

2. The postcard that states ‘We, your parish church, are praying for this community.  Please let us know if you have a prayer request and we will include it in our prayers’. This is intended for members of the public to fill in and post / leave in the church. You will need to add your church details to the back of this post card.  You can print this information on labels to stick on the back using Avery 2x7 or 2x8.   Alternatively individuals can hand write these details on the back if using in small numbers.

Suggestions for use:

  • leave these in the church if the church is open for prayer
  • advertise on your church notice board where these postcards are available in a porch or post bag and place a weather resistant prayer request box in a visible place or in your church porch
