Home Prayer


3861888_origPrayer 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.
  • We operate a This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , where requests for prayer can be quickly passed round our church members. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
  • 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 

At a one-to-one level we're always happy to pray for you, or with you, if you'd like to know the assurance of God's love and care. Do get in touch (see Contacts) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

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.

Principles of the St Michael's Prayer Chain

3861888_origPrinciples of the St Michael's Prayer Chain:

  • Your prayer request will be read by a trusted member of our church Care & Prayer team. Usually this will be Ian, but when he is away it will be passed to another trusted person such as our Church Administrator or the Rector's Personal Assistant.
  • Your request will then be passed on to others who are trusted to pray seriously and treat your personal information in confidence. 
  • We will normally forward your request on by email, so email address details will usually be passed on unless you ask us not to.
  • While we will try to treat all information in confidence, please consider carefully whether you want to name others or discuss particular details in your email, bearing in mind what is appropriate in terms of sharing personal information.
  • We welcome others to join our prayer chain, so if you are interested please contact Ian. You are welcome to send a Prayer Chain email to reach him.
