Prayer is a vital part of the life of our churches and is encouraged as a first-line response in all circumstances. When individuals have encountered difficulty or trauma the churches have provided not only pastoral support and advice but intense prayer as well, including through a few prayer partnerships. Prayer sessions are arranged in response to particular circumstances and we have seen significant response from God as a result.
Intercession sheets are produced each week, to assist those leading intercessions at the main services, and include details of the sick and bereaved, and other local needs.
For those leading intercessions we have produce some Intercessions Planning ideas.
Prayer in small groups is significant for many, and a wonderful way of people coming together to pray for the church.
We currently pray as a parish via zoom on Tuesday at 8am-8.30pm. The zoom prayer links are:
