Given that prayer is a great privilege for us we encourage everyone to pray regularly. Currently we cannot meet together in person to pray so we offer the resources below to help you in praying at home.
- A Prayer Gatherings are held in Church from time to time
- The Quiet Room in the Parish Centre is open for private prayer Mon-Fri 8.30am-11.30am (except during the Wednesday Holy Communion Service from 9.30am-10.45am)
Full details and some aids to prayer can be found on the brochure below.
A morning prayer
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord,
to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom;
defend us in all assaults of our enemies,
that we, surely trusting in your protection,
may not fear the power of any adversaries;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
An evening prayer
Lighten our darkness, O Lord, we pray
and in your great mercy defend us
from all perils and dangers of this night;
for the love of your sonly Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
