Our relationship with God is the foundation of everything we are, say and do. So prayer, in many forms, is a major aspect of our church life together.
This is a monthly prayer meeting held at St. Mary’s house, usually on the second Tuesday of each month, 7.30-8.30 p.m. We gather to bring the needs and work of the church and the wider community before God in prayer.
Sunday Prayer ministry
After the main 10.00 service each week, our prayer ministry team are available in St. Peter’s chapel [within St. Mary’s church] to offer prayer with those who have come carrying a burden they need help with to unload to God.
As and when emergency situations arise, we alert a team via our prayer line who will lift any immediate situation to our Lord for His care and attention. This can be accessed by calling the church office 01237 474078 10.00-12.00 Mon- Fri, or clergy at other times.
Many of our members have informally arranged to meet regularly to pray in threes for mutual support, encouragement and accountability as they seek to grow in faith.
A contemplative prayer time facilitated in the church building monthly.
Prayer for the day
“But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.””
1 Samuel 16:7
