Half Night of Prayer

Tuesday, 6th January 2009; 5.00pm to 11.00pm

Please come and join us for a very special evening of individual, small group and corporate prayer.

The Evening will focus on four main areas:

  1. The life of the Church;
  2. The work of the Church;
  3. Reaching out;
  4. The Community.

The Church will be open for quiet individual prayer between 5.00pm and 7.00pm.

At 7.00pm there will be a time of introduction, praise and worship, reading and a brief talk before we get down to further intercessory prayer.

The last hour (10.00pm to 11.00pm) will also include some worship as well as an opportunity for people to share anything they sensed the Lord may have been saying to us as a Church.

We want this time to be as much about listening to the Lord as sharing our concerns with Him.

The Hope Centre wins an Award!

We are delighted to announce that The Hope Centre, at Minehead Baptist Church, has been awarded for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Reducing Re-Offending’ at the 2008 Avon and Somerset Criminal Justice Board’s annual awards.

The Awards ceremony was held on Tuesday, 2nd December.

See an article from the West Somerset Free Press.

The Hope Centre volunteers provide advice and support, as well as hot meals, drinks, bathing and clothes washing facilities.

They also help to make doctors appointments, speak to housing officers and source furniture for those that have made a fresh start in accommodation of their own.

Visitors to the Centre can also take part in constructive activities, such as crafts, games and trips out.

The impact that The Hope Centre has on the Minehead community has been huge. Not only do many of their visitors now enjoy a better quality of life, but the level of calls received by the police in relation to these people has dropped considerably.
