Prayer is a fundamental element of a Christian's life: it assures us of our relationship with our loving God, and it's a vital channel whereby we share his goodness with our world.
As a church, we are charged with praying for our parish and its people: we take this responsibility seriously and address it in various ways. Most obviously...
- Every week in our Sunday worship, we pray for our country, our community and ourselves.
- We also often have a time of prayer ministry following our Contemporary Morning Worship Service where we can pray more directly for each other.
- As a top-up to other prayer we also operate a Prayer Wall, where people commit to prayer for 1/2 hour slots throughout the week. Topics for the Prayer Wall are usually published weekly in our newsheet
Finally, a suggestion...If you'd like to explore prayer further on your own, the Prayer Eleven website offers some interesting resources. We don't yet have a firm view on whether we'd like to use them across our whole church, but we'd welcome anyone giving them a try. Do let us know how you get on.
