“Return to your first love”

As we begin the new year, what better way to start than to focus on God’s love for us and our love in return, so that all we do in 2022 is a response to that love.

5 churches are joining together to pray continuously for a week, covering our local community and the wider world in prayer: Pendennis Good News Church, Resound, Downend Baptist Church, Badminton Road Methodist Church and Christ Church Downend. The week is divided into hour long slots which you can book online using this link:


if you can’t use online booking please call Anita Dobson on 07753233950 or email at anitadobson@christchurchdownend.com

You can pray at home, or with others, or go on a prayer walk. You can use Scipture, music, creativity, silence, intercession, however you wish. you can take an hour slot every day, or a few over the week, or just one. If you have never prayed by yourself for an hour then do try it! There is a guide below to help.
