Alton Webteam: September 2017
"How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!" (Ps 133:1). On Friday 27th October at 8pm Alton Methodist Church will be privileged to host the next gathering of Pray-ers Together, a prayer and fellowship meeting which is truly interdenominational. Representatives from a variety of churches and Christian traditions in the Alton area get together to share news of what is going on in their area and bring it all before God's loving care. It is a special meeting — every time, you find out something exciting going on and a hot drink and a biscuit can usually be found to provide earthly as well as spiritual refreshment! If you haven't been before, do come — it is so encouraging to join together and remember how much we have in common with our brothers and sisters around Alton.
