Prayer

At Sutton Vineyard we believe that when we pray, God hears us - we’re starting a conversation with the creator of the universe. 

When we pray, we partner with God to seek His kingdom! But Christians don’t necessarily find prayer easy and so often we fail to prioritise it.

We know we need a relationship with God, but we don't spend time talking to him or claiming his promises.

We have a number of different opportunities to learn and grow in prayer, both as individuals and together as a church.

 

24-7 Prayer


24-7 Prayer


During 2017, we were inspired by the 24-7 Prayer Movement - www.24-7prayer.com - to seek God for a special prayer space for our town.

Sutton Vineyard were led by God to take on the old Dolphin pub in the centre of Sutton. We believe God has given the gift of this place to all of the churches in Sutton and the surrounding area, to help us prioritise prayer. 

The Dolphin Prayer Room 

The Dolphin, formally a pub with a less-than positive past, has been transformed into a place of community, outreach, prayer and numerous other ministries. 

As part of the renovations, the back room of this pub has physically and spiritually become a place for anyone and everyone to meet God and soak up His presence.

We want the prayer room to support the rhythm of prayer within the churches of Sutton. A place to plug in and charge up all the groups we are a part of, missions we lead and communities we contribute to and give it all back to God.

We want the prayer room to bring those who do not know God to meet and engage with Him in a way they may not have been exposed to before. A  place set aside to offer sanctuary and acceptance. Our prayer is that relationships are formed and built in this space, in God’s presence.

Prayer Month November 18 - Mission

"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." Mark 16:15

From Monday 5th November until Saturday 1st December the Prayer Room will have a theme of Mission as we support the SVC team travelling to Cape Town between the 8th and 18th of November to visit Denzil and Lee-anne and work with the Aslan Hope-In-Sport team.

We will feature details of the of the project, members of the team and their individual prayer requests. We will provide motivation through scriptures, pictures and suggestions for prayer.
