Novena is a new project based on the old tradition of Christians meeting together to pray. We are focusing specifically on the nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost – the time when the early Christians were commanded by Jesus to wait and pray for the Holy Spirit (see Luke 24:49; Acts 2).
We would like to encourage anybody who is able to come along and join us at Durham Road Baptist Church for prayer during this time.
