Thanksgiving

English speaking church on the Costa del Sol

At The Ark there is a strong emphasis on prayer, supplication and thanksgiving.  Prayers are shared among the congregation all through the week

As God answers our prayers thanks are given to God and are shared among us all as a sign of encouragement to all. This is in line with The Ark’s vision of ‘building one another up’.  Here are just some of the thanks that have been shared in the past 4 weeks to encourage us all:
