Prayer in Homegroups
in small groups

The church operates a system of home groups, and people are strongly urged to find a homegroup that suits them. Prayer is a vital part of the homegroup meeting and each group will make time for prayer during their time together. This is a good place to start praying with others in a small group.

Prayer Wall

Our prayer wall bricks - we expressed our prayers artistically

Prayer as part of Sunday services

Each Sunday worship service contains some elements of prayer within it. We have prayers of praise and worship, reflective prayers, time for open prayer, meditation prayer, silence for prayer, prayer of confession, intercessory prayers, pastoral prayers, healing prayer, personal prayer, liturgical prayer .... and lots of other prayers too.

Because each service is different, no service will have every form of prayer within it. Some prayers are taken by the minister, some by members of the congregation who have prepared them in advance, and some are spontaneous. In a church service, we enjoy a variety of forms of prayer..

Praying before Sunday Worship

Anyone is welcome to come into the prayer room, for 10 minutes before the service starts, to pray for the service and those involved in it. Any time you are free, come in and share in prayer.

Prayer after a Church Service

We give people an opportunity to have someone pray with them after a morning service. A person may feel 'spoken to' by the service that has just finished, or may have concerns about themselves or someone else that can be brought to God in prayer.

It may be that a person is facing some challenge in the coming days, such as a visit to hospital or an interview.

All these, and any other topics, can be prayed for and we are offering a team of people to pray with individuals who ask it after the morning service. Those available to pray with people will be at the back of the church after the service wearing a 'Prayer Team' badge.

Private Prayer

Prayer that is confined to church on Sunday is not an adequate diet of prayer for an active Christian. We assume that people, in their own ways, and using their own patterns, will have a life of prayer that happens in the week, and not just on Sundays.
