WhatsApp Prayer Group
If you would like to be part of the WhatsApp Prayer Group contact Helen Eckford on 07709 932767
To be a Christian without prayer, is no more possible than to be alive without breathing. (Martin Luther)
We have so many people and so many things to pray for in Port Glasgow: New Parish Church that we need all the help we can get. Each member of the group will receive a list which will be updated regularly, of people and things that we need to pray for.
You then do this in your own time and space.
Remember too, the book in the vestibule of the church where you can write the name of anyone you know who needs support through prayer.
