The prayer ministry team meets before each Sunday morning service (to pray for the Church) and on a Thursday afternoon between 15:45 and 17:00. We pray together and bring into God’s presence our concerns for our Church, community and any specific prayer needs and requests we have received from others.
We offer prayer and a listening ear in the South Chapel after each morning service and during the Holy Communion and Healing and Wholeness services.
On occasion (on request) we do visit people in their homes to talk with them and pray with them. Often, we are asked to pray for people or situations beyond our own church community, we respond to these requests at our Thursday meetings and cards are posted out saying we are indeed praying.
We are actively involved in encouraging our family to pray, we have a prayer tree and a prayer box in our resource area of the Church, a prayer square in the weekly notice sheet and arrange events throughout the year such as prayer walks, fast and prayer days and prayer labyrinth.
The prayer team can be contacted through the Rector or by ringing Carol Hunter on 01226 755829
