The Spring Tide June conference weekend at St Mary’s, “Lord Teach Us To Pray”, was very well attended, and much valued by those present. At least 24 churches were represented. It was very relaxed, and provided lots of opportunity for prayer for Scarborough and many contributions from the congregations gathered together, sensing what the Lord was saying to his Church. Very creative helpful Stations of different ways and focus of prayer had been set up throughout St Mary’s.
All of the session speakers were from local churches: Geoff Bowell (Pentecostal), Adrian Moore, (Kingdom Faith), Richard Walker, (Anglican), Graham Morgan (Methodist), Diana Gott (Baptist), each speaker focussing on a different verse from the Lord’s Prayer. Mary Jobling (Anglican) and Claire Daniels (Kingdom Faith) led a prayer walk during the Saturday afternoon. Throughout the weekend there was a strong sense of the Spring Tide will soon be arranging three evening services at St Mary’s. Theme: The Character of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All at 6.30pm, the dates are Sunday 9 September, 14 October and 11 November.
