Prayer is listening to and talking with God. It is about an ever deepening relationship with God. Prayer is therefore both organised and spontaneous.
Prayer must be at the heart of our mission and we like to encourage prayer, not just through our regular services and Connect groups but also as we gather for prayer at midweek prayer meetings (see our weekly bulletin for more up to date information).
We also have an emergency prayer chain. Requests for this can be emailed into the office or contact Jean Corney or one of the clergy directly. In addition prayer with a mission focus and personal prayer needs have a section in our weekly church bulletin. Sample prayers can be found here or are available at the Church bookstall to take home, as are books on prayer.
SUNDAY PRAYER MINISTRY TEAM
These are teams of people whom we equip and train to pray with individuals at the end of or during services and we thank God for many answered prayers.
SATURDAY MORNING STREET PRAYER
A further team take hot drinks to the area near to The Spires shopping centre with the aim to be the church outside the buildings- sharing our values- praying for healing and building relationships in the community.
A monthly prayer diary aims to cover wider aspects of church life with prayer pointer for each day.
