Ever feel like you're the only Christian in your workplace?
You're not alone. There's a network you can connect with - wherever you're based, all across Melbourne. Join other Christians meeting before work or over lunch to pray for your workplace and your colleagues, and be encouraged! You are part of something bigger.
“Apart from prayer, all our scurrying about, all our talking, all our study amounts to nothing. For most of us the voice of self-reliance is ten times louder than the bell that tolls for the hours of prayer. The voice cries out: ‘You must open the mail, you must make that call, you must prepare for the board meeting…’. But the bell tolls softly: ‘Without Me you can do nothing’” - John Piper

2. Running a prayer group
Every group is different, and will need to figure out what is helpful amongst those who attend. However, through years of experience, we've found some common themes for a group to remain focused, encouraged and excited!
We've compiled some tips for starting, sustaining and mobilising a prayer group in our Prayer Leaders Guidebook.
3. Staying connected
We have a staff team here in Melbourne that would love to help get you going. We're happy to pop into your group, or even help in the training and equipping or your prayer leaders. Nothing is too big or small - just reach out.
Moreover, beyond regular prayer groups, City Bible Forum also offers:
- resources to dig deeper
- events to help support the people who attend your prayer team to live out their faith in the workplace.
- lunch time discussions that are suitable to invite friends who are curious about exploring the Bigger Questions.
The best way to keep a finger on the pulse is to subscribe to our weekly newsletter. We will keep you posted about the latest events (e.g. Life @ Work training events, Bigger Questions recordings) and provide helpful articles targeted to Christians in the workplace.
