Thank and Think Praise and Prayer
These ideas were contributed by members of the congregation during one of the prayer sessions at our Prayer & Praise Celebration Service. They say what we want to Thank God for; and the ways we Think we might use the building in the future for God’s work here in Bookham. Our service was a reflection on our mission statement. “Building Faith in the Community.”
