The Evening Prayer will also be held at 19:00.

Continuing on Wednesday, 21st February, our 'Deeper' Bible Study and Prayer Meeting will resume at 19:30, focusing on the conclusion of our exploration through Colossians. Additionally, starting from Thursday, 22nd February at 11 AM, we are introducing a new weekly session dedicated to Bible Study, Prayer, and Fellowship.
