DAILY PRAYER

Church of England morning, evening and night prayers
These links will take you to the full written liturgy for the day with psalms and readings. 

PRAYER

We use a cycle of prayer each week.  The topics for prayer are mentioned on the back of the weekly notice sheet and may be used by the person writing the intercessions used in our services.  

The notice sheet also includes details of those who have asked for our prayers.  If you would like yourself or some-one you know added to the list of those for whom we pray, please speak to Revd Rachel Wilson, the Office or Pauline Hardwick.

Prayer Board

At the back of church, outside the old Baptistery, there is a prayer board.  You can put on here details of people for whom you would like us to pray. The requests left there will be prayed for during Morning and Evening Prayer across the week

Prayers for Healing

We have a small team of prayer ministers who offer prayer for healing and wholeness in the side Lady Chapel once a month, usually on the fourth Sunday while people come up to the main altar for communion.

Monthly Prayer Diary

A monthly prayer diary with daily topics for prayer is available at the back of church. We pray for different members of the congregation each day.

Diocesan Calendar of Intercessions

The Diocese produces a calendar of intercessions.

Michaelmas to Advent

- 1st October to 30th December

Prayer Stations

From time to time, we set up prayer stations using creative ways to help us to pray.  Currently there are prayer stations in the Colebrooke chapellooking at when doubting Thomas meets Jesus and says "My Lord, and my God".
