Advent is a time of waiting and preparation (it literally means arrival).
On the Saturday before Advent Sunday, we are setting aside time to pray – from 7am to 9pm.
You are invited to spend one hour during the day in silence, worship and intercession to bring the needs of our world before God.
Sign up for our prayer day
Hourly slots can be booked by more than one person, so please pick the time that suits you best.

(Of course you can use this guide to set aside time for prayer any time during advent.)
Wherever there is the grace of God, human beings pray. God works in us, for we know not how to pray as we ought. It is the Spirit of God that incites us and enables us to pray in a fitting manner. We are not skilled to judge whether we are worthy or capable of praying, or whether we have sufficient zeal to pray. Grace in itself is the answer to this question. When we are comforted by the grace of God, we begin to pray with or without words.
—Karl Barth, Prayer
