We would love Southend Christians to consider joining in a nationwide prayer initiative between April and June. Details are available at www.unitedinprayer.co.uk
The site also carries prayer resources for individuals, groups or churches (on-line of course!) to use.
You could consider being involved in any of these ways:
• sign up for an hour’s prayer at a time(s) that suits you
• encourage any other Christian you know to do the same
• sign up for someone else who would like to be involved but does not have internet access
• if you are a church leader to consider a) passing this information on to your congregation and/or b) to sign your congregation up for a 24hr period if you feel you have capacity for that.
Many people are serving our communities in magnificent ways – here’s another way any of us can serve our nation and honour Jesus.
Thank you for giving this your consideration.

Love Southend in the lockdown
We are resolved to continue to meet our mandate of showing God’s love throughout the Borough of Southend. We honour the powerful witness to God’s love that is being expressed by individual Christians, churches and Christian ministries in the borough in these challenging days; and the magnificent work of key and essential workers in our community.
Convinced that exalting the name of Jesus in worship and standing in the gap for our community in prayer and intercession is a vital need for the borough, we have positioned the Love Southend network to be a focus for borough-wide worship and intercession. We are maintaining our schedule of meetings but they are all now opportunities for worship and prayer by Zoom. You would be most welcome to join us.
If you would like to join one of these worship/intercession times please email [email protected]
