Why wait for Sundays to fellowship and worship the Lord with fellow believers?
Our Church’s Prayer Groups give you the chance to meet and greet fellow believers in your locality and to praise and worship Jesus together. Seize this opportunity to strengthen, encourage, and grow in your faith with other members of our church during the week.
“What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation Let all things be done for edification.”
– 1 Corinthians 14:26
KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR PRAYER GROUPS
Our Prayer Groups are an extension of our Church Ministry, where people meet in small groups to grow together in our relationship with God and each other.
The Prayer Groups are for people of all ages to come together, grow deeper in our faith and fellowship, pray together and for each other in our walk with God. There will be worship, sharing of testimonies, bible study, prayer, snacks & treats, laughter & tears!
Our Prayer Groups meet every week either online or in pre-designated locations spread across the city. To know the details about the Prayer Group that is closest to you, please read through all these instructions and thereafter reach out to the Church Office.
The Church appoints a spiritual leader to take care of each of the Prayer Group called COACH. The COACH reports to a Zonal Pastor. In addition, a Prayer Group has a WORSHIP HELP who assists the Prayer Group in worship ministry. For Prayer Groups that meet physically, we also have a HOST who joyfully opens up their houses for conducting the Prayer Group meetings.
The Prayer Groups are an extension of our Pastoral Care where the aim is to grow together in our relationship with God and each other. Hence, we encourage everyone to get connected to a Prayer Group.
The Prayer Group ministry is open to everyone who consider Bethel AG Church as their spiritual home and are committed to the vision and leadership of this church.
- If you are connected deeply to any other church/ ministry, we encourage you to be faithful under that leadership and grow therein.
- If you were part of another church before, and Bethel AG is your spiritual home now, we encourage you to align with the vision of this church. Be open to learn and adapt to the way this ministry functions to fulfill the unique calling of this church and together accomplish what God has set out for us to accomplish.
- We expect our Prayer Group members to honour the leaders that the church leadership appoints over them
- We expect them to honour other Prayer Group members and grow together as a family.
- We do not appreciate gossip, groupism, unholy relationships and any financial transactions/commitments between prayer-group/church members
- We expect them to grow in a lifestyle prescribed in the Holy Bible; through Worship, Prayer, Fellowship & study of God’s Word
