Prayer

  • Here in the London North East Division we want to encourage a culture of prayer. To this end we produce resources around a specific prayer focus every six weeks for you to download and use as you see fit. They might be perfect to help you theme your corps prayer room or might be just what you need to give your own personal prayer time more focus.

  • Please feel free to click on the links below to download the current resources:

  • Prayer Leaflet

  • Prayer Postcard

HEDYMAC

HEDYMAC is the unwieldy acronym for the Herts&Essex Divisional Youth Advisory Council! We hope that this group will be a place where the voice of young people, youth work volunteers and officers (who will make up the group) will speak into divisional youth work and events.

If you are a young person, volunteer youth worker or officer and would like to apply to be a part of this group then please complete the form below and send it back to ben.still@salvationarmy.org.uk. If you'd like more information then just drop Ben an email with your question instead. We look forward to hearing from you!
