Prayer is the most important resource available to us. If you would like prayer for yourself or on behalf of someone else we are here for you.
Prayer ministry is available during and after our Sunday services. If it is not obvious where this is taking place then please do ask.
Prayer meetings are held regularly - every Tuesday morning (during term time) 9am till 9.30am and 8-9.30pm in the meeting room downstairs (in the church centre). Everyone is welcome.
Prayer gatherings are also held ad hoc in the evenings, further details will be published in the notices, by church family email (usually sent on a Friday) and in the church calendar.
The Prayer Course www.prayercourse.org – is six interactive sessions based on The Lord’s Prayer, covering topics such as intercession, dealing with disappointment, learning to listen and spiritual warfare. Please email our reception team if you would like to do this the next time it is run.
Monthly prayer – join us wherever you are in praying for our community and our world. See the following sections on this website ‘news’ ‘prayer for this week’.
Confidential prayer - this is available if you would like prayer for a specific situation or urgent need. In these circumstances please contact Maureen Edwards: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our head of prayer is Lawrence Comber. He oversees all of the different prayer teams and types of prayer that happen across the life of the church. Please contact him by email: email@example.com.
