Catching the Wave, the highlight of trypraying… a novel approach for both those that do and those that don’t

5 March 2020

Here at MBC, Lent, that’s the 26th Feb to April 5th will be time when we will be focusing specifically on prayer. Throughout the whole of this time we will be using some material called Try Praying – a novel scheme designed for both those who aren’t religious and don’t go to church but also for those who do.

There’s more about the thinking behind this plan at and to help it along there are also two books. One is actually more a booklet which is free of charge and designed to be given out anywhere and everywhere. The other is more a personal prayer guide which costs £3. Both are available from the MBC office.

There’s a chart below showing our Service plan for Lent 2020. Each of these is based on a particular section from the Try Praying guide and reading them in advance will be a great help when it comes to following our overarching theme.

Ten days into Lent, and running in conjunction with the Try Praying project MBC is holding its next Prayer Day. It’s  called Catching the Wave and is happening on March 7th between 10am and 10pm.As you can see above the event is promising: “A day full of prayer through imagery, music, art, quiet reflection and movement.”
