Team members will pray following the contact and members in each of the 3 churches will then be asked to pray for that particular street throughout the following 2 weeks. No individual details will be used.
If someone is out or doesn’t feel able to come to the door when the team members call they can complete a little postcard which will be posted through their door and write a prayer request on that. There will be post boxes outside all 3 churches to put these prayer request cards into.
After 2 weeks the churches will move on to a different street in the same area.
“We are always looking for ways to bless our neighbours and our community and we go out confidently street by street to offer prayer support in this area knowing that we have a wonderful, loving God who listens to and answers prayer. Maybe not always the way we expect! It’s an extra blessing that all 3 churches are working together on this and there will be 3 churches praying! Amazing! We look forward to seeing a change in our Bangor West area.”
I have given this some thought and the one thing that stands out is that young Christian girl coming out from her house to hug us and to tell us all that she thought what we were doing was great. I did have a feeling that we were doing what God wants from us. I also felt that people need us to be calling. I felt some homes made me feel welcome and were happy to talk to me. Some people needed someone to talk to and I was glad I was there to listen .— Nanette McCoy, St Gall’s
Street by street is about bringing God's blessing to the homes visited in Bangor West through the offer of prayer. It is in a sense the three churches involved making the invisible God visible through us reaching out to people in love.— Neilson Wylie, CMC
I feel so privileged to be a part of the street by street team! For me street by street us all about being a witness for God in our local areas. Nearly every time a door is knocked you come across another problem or need in our community and its such a blessing to bring the hope of God to those people! It helps us realise that prayer is such an amazing way that we can talk to God and how he will always listen! -- Mark Trimble CMC
Street by street makes me feel like I am back in Ibiza, actively walking around and praying for those in our community! What I love is that you are walking knowing that you are walking in the spirit because the people are in the prayer room praying! It is so exciting and such a privilege to get to do this mission and as Neilson always says making the invisible God visible! -- Claire Stewart CMC
