During the year a team of 4 people from all 3 churches have been going out knocking on doors in designated streets on alternate Tuesday evenings and asking for prayer requests from the residents. The team then promise to pray for those needs for a fortnight, before moving on to another few streets.
Prayer Coordinator at Carnalea Methodist Church, Neilson Wylie commented:
“Those of us involved in Street by Street have been richly blessed by God through our participation, especially in the unity with the three churches in Bangor West working together. There has been a phrase coined which exemplifies what we are in part trying to achieve through this outreach in our community and that is ‘making the invisible God visible’”.
At the celebration evening Rev Fiona McCrea from Carnalea Methodist, the coordinator of the project, thanked everyone who had participated and said:
“We may never hear about the answers to our prayers in the streets we have visited but we go out each time confident that we can trust God to answer each and every one of our prayers.”
She has calculated that the whole of the Bangor West area will be visited within 2 years – so by January 2019.
