St Paul's Extended Worship Gathering Update

posted Jan 17, 2017, 2:42 AM by Kirsty O'Grady

Many of you have probably heard of Extended Worship Gathering (or EWG for short), but what actually is it? Well, the clue is in the name…

Essentially EWG is a monthly Sunday service at 6.30pm which is a little longer. EWG was originally started because those who had attended the New Wine conference in August desired a similar experience back here in Widnes. As such, there is a longer time of sung worship, an often interactive talk and then there is a longer time reserved at the end of the service to respond to what is said in prayer by asking God to speak to us. We often ask for the Holy Spirit to give us gifts of prophecy or healing in this time and we like to leave enough space to allow God to do what he wants to do.

At the moment in EWG we are going through a series on the sayings of Jesus in John’s Gospel where Jesus tells us about who he is: “I am…” So far we have explored how Jesus is the bread of life and the light of the world and tonight we will be exploring how Jesus is the gate or the door.

Everyone is welcome so please do come along… We believe that Jesus is alive and wants to do something here in Widnes and in our hearts and lives and we believe this is a pretty good place to start.
