"Out and About in Ramsey, Peel and Douglas"
Holy Week is traditionally a time for outdoor witness.
Revd Steve Wild (President of Conference) and the team helped us to find the confidence to do one of two things on these occasions.
The opportunity to get out into the community and pray for various aspects of the life of the local people and their families and businesses.
Offering Prayer Cards
A simple way of speaking to people and asking them if there is anything they would like us to pray for. These cards will be used in various ways in our times of worship during the week.
These simple ways of engaging with our local communities can lead to real conversations, and who knows what else God may do with our willingness to take a very small risk.
