NAME: Intercession Group

FACILITATOR: Claire Richardson

LOCATION: New Life Church

DAY / TIME:  Monday 9.30-10.30am

DESCRIPTION: We are a small group, open to anyone who feels prompted to join us for prayer/intercession.  We start with Scripture ( usually one of the Psalms). We have no agenda, and try to pray as the Lord leads.  This is sometimes surprising, but always "right"!  Our prayers can include issues within NLC, requests for healing, prayers for the Woking community, the nation, the world, all as the Lord leads.


If you would like to join us, you’d be very welcome.  

Art Group

NAME: Art Group

FACILITATOR: Claire Richardson


DAY / TIME: Tuesday 2 - 4pm (during term time)

DESCRIPTION:  You do not have to be an artist/painter to come to this, and Claire who leads us is not a teacher!  However, you will have fun in 'playing' with the paints (either watercolours, poster or powder paints). All materials provided.

You will learn that making marks on paper can be inspirational, fascinating and therapeutic!  A small charge of £1 per session helps to cover costs of materials.


We usually start with a short Bible verse, a prayer and/or some other suggestion, and then see where the Lord leads!  Afterwards we share what we have done. Do come and try it!  All are welcome!
