Underpinned With Prayer

next steps

As with any church project, prayer is the essential element that underpins Next Steps. We value your prayers and this page will give some prayer points for you to use including a downloadable guide.


Let us start by Praising & Giving Thanks to God:

  • For His unending faithfulness and goodness.

  • For listed building consent being granted for Phase one (the improvements to the rear rooms and the rehoming of the organ).for the inspiration given to the architects as they considered the objections given by the BU’s Listed Buildings Advisory Committee and found potential solutions for Phase 2 (front entrance, stairs and porch)

  • For a clearer indication from the Baptist Union’s Listed Buildings Advisory Committee as to what they might be prepared to accept for Phase Two.

  • For the creativity of our architects at Jefferson Sheard (JS) who came up with a super revised plan very quickly for Phase Two (the front entrance, stairs, balcony and main worship area).

  • That the revised plan received enthusiastic, unanimous approval from our church members.

  • For the Nimrod Mighty Hunter fundraising event which raised over £300 and the donation of over £100 from the Ladies’ Breakfast.

Now, here are some prayers you could use to ask God:

The Team asks for specific prayer support for the planning application process at this time

  • For all of the paperwork which needs to be done to support the application for the Phase Two revised plan. Please pray particularly for Helen, Peter T and Peter W (from JS) as they write and put it all together. It’s a huge job..

  • For the whole NS team as they continue their work looking at the fine details of the revised Phase Two plans which need to be submitted in time for the 18th October deadline.

  • For continued energy and wisdom for the NS team at this very busy time in the application process.

  • That a suitable new ‘home’ for the organ will be found where it will be used regularly.
