"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."   - Eph 5:16-18 (NIV)
As we begin a new chapter in our journey as a local church, we believe that prayer is an essential part of what God desires to do both in and through us.
 
We believe that prayer needs to become a key value here at MEC, and we believe that much of God's blessing is as a direct consequence to the simple, obedient response to Jesus' call to prayer. The more we press forward in serving the Lord, seeing His Kingdom established, seeing lives transformed, the deeper our foundations in prayer need to be.
 
To this end, we want to encourage you to pray daily as part of your personal time of devotion. To help you with this, we have included some resources below.
PRE-SERVICE PRAYER
PRAYER AT THE SERVICE
SUNDAY PRAYER MEETING
PERSONAL PRAYER
You are welcome to join us for prayer before each Sunday morning service from 10.00am to around 10.20am in the meeting room.
There are times when we will invite people forward for prayer during the service. However, the Prayer Team will also be on hand to pray for you after the service at the front of the church if you would prefer. Our trained Prayer Team are identifiable by the Prayer Team badges. 
We believe in the power of prayer. Of all the things the disciples could have asked Jesus to teach them, they asked Him to teach them how to pray. We encourage daily personal prayer. Below are some resources that you may find helpful to use in your prayer time.
We have a prayer meeting on Sunday evenings at MEC from 6pm to 7pm. We start with a time of worship and then pray for individuals, our church family, our nation, other nations and various issues as the Lord leads. There is also opportunity for personal prayer as well. 
PRAYER MEETINGS
We will be setting aside dedicated seasons of prayer and fasting throughout the year. During these times, we will be encouraging people to pray and possibly to fast as well as we look to the Lord for His undertaking. We also meet weekly for corporate prayer on Sunday evenings at the following time:
PM:  Sundays 6.00pm-7.00pm (Prayer Service)
