Station 6 is at the pulpit and the Acts window. Our passages for prayer today are from Acts and the letters. The Apostles were filled with the Spirit and fanned out into the world sharing what they had seen and heard. That story continues at this pulpit others around the world.
They had to tell people what Jesus means for the world. This produces some of the most beautiful lines in the New Testament.

For #ThyKingdomCome we've set up a prayer walk through St Mary's. Our theme this year is using the Bible in prayer. Throughout the church there are stations set up with resources for Lectio Divina.
We were inspired by running the @biblesociety's Bible Course over Lent. So we've set up the stations as a prayer journey through the whole Bible.
We start at the font with a chance to reflect on the first five books of the Bible. One of our texts is from the beginning of Genesis: 'and the spirit of God was brooding upon the face of the waters' #ThyKingdomCome
