We hope you've all been soaking up the sun while it lasts! We certainly have been making the most of it by occasionally holding our Family Prayerwatches outside.
June was a busy month as we prepared for our Sessions event with Barnabus. We had a great night hearing from Neil about the work that Barnabus do and God's heart for the homeless and then being able to respond in prayer. If you missed it, don't worry you can watch it here.
Coming up this month we have our Interest Night (Fri, 13th July), which will be an opportunity to find out more about what the house of prayer is all about and chat with some of the staff team. We'd love to see you there!

Our Meditation Verse for this coming month is Revelation 8:3-4,
"Then another angel, having a golden Censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand."
This will be our verse for our meditation groups as well as for each Worship with the Word this month. To help you focus over the course of the month we've created wallpaper images for phones, tablets and computer desktops. You can download them now from our website here. We make a new one each month, so make sure you check them out!
Don't forget, our Prayer Room is open each Monday from 6-10pm for our prayerwatches and each Wednesday from 9am-1pm.
We have our final Family Prayer of this term coming up this coming Monday 9th July this time at Michael and Becci's house for a party. We will be celebrating how amazing the kids have been this past year and how hard they have worked at planning for prayer leading and practising their instruments to be on the worship teams.
As always, we can't wait to see you soon!

Michael and Becci have an exciting new project they have been working on for a little while. "Tracks" is a new series of audio recordings, captured live in the prayer room and elsewhere. Each one will be a spontaneous moment of worship starting withe this one 'Find me Waiting' recorded at MHOP last month. We hope you enjoy!

Psalm 1 encourages us to meditate on His word night and day and our Meditation Groups give opportunity do this with others and be strengthen and built up as we encounter God through His word.
We would love for you to join us at our next Sessions. Sessions are hour long times of informal teaching, focusing on topics such as intimacy with God, a lifestyle of prayer or the urgency of the hour.
MHOP is a charity. We rely on our members, regular attenders and others who love our vision, whose giving enables us to do all that the Lord calls us to do.
