Try Praying (trypraying.co.uk) is for those who don’t do church. It’s an invitation to begin talking to God. There is a website, smartphone app (iOS and Android) and a booklet. Churches Together in Ringwood and District launched Try Praying at the recent Love Ringwood weekend where we gave away hundreds of free booklets to encourage people to try talking to God.

From the 1st July 2018 I  want us to launch Try Praying across our 6 churches plus our toddler groups, youth groups and our Messy Church communities to see what God might do if we encourage people to try praying. 

 

What can you do?

  1. Give away at least one free booklet (these will be circulated to churches for Sunday 24th June). Or, encourage someone to download the app onto their smartphones.

  3. Give your own prayer life a ‘refresh’ by committing to a daily reflection about prayer for 40 days called ‘Catching the Wave’. You can….
