Put God First

Here at St Thomas’ Church, we believe God is calling us to invest ourselves more in prayer – both as individuals and together as a church.  We have become aware that for too long we have ‘busied ourselves with our own houses’ (Haggai 1.9) and neglected the ‘house of God.’  We have increasingly come to rely on ourselves, rather than rely on God – and so Jesus has reminded us: ‘I am the vine, you are the branches.  If you remain in me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing.’  (John 15.5)

To help refocus us on this vital life of prayer and intimacy with God that is at the heart of the Christian life, we are setting aside the first day of each month as a church-wide day of prayer and fasting.  We are calling this Put God First on the First. This is intended to be a simple way of starting each new month by setting aside time for God, as a sign of our commitment to put Him first throughout the month to come.  

This leaflet, Put God First on the First has been prepared to explain how  we can all be involved.
