You are ALL invited to a time of Prayer

Looking out of the window as I consider what to post on our website and social media, it is dark, wet and very cold. Thankfully we don't have snow yet. 

I want to call you all to prayer, even you who may not have prayed before. Reading a book by our very own Bishop John Pritchard (Handbook of Christian Ministry, available from all good booksellers), I stumble upon a beautiful quote;

'Prayer is like sunbathing; we go out to sunbathe in the love of God...we can't turn up the heat of the sun any higher; we can only choose to lie in it or not. There may be clouds in the way at times (stuff happens) but the love of God for us is constant; we can't make God love us more, nor can we make him love us less.' (Pritchard. J. Handbook of Christian Ministry, 2020, Page 134)

I invite you ALL to turn away from the dark clouds, the cold wet weather and take a moment to bathe in the Love that God offers us through his Grace....Unconditional Love....

Offer prayer of; ‘Gratitude, wonder, regret and need. We all know what these feel like. Prayer is when we take these instincts and stretch them out intentionally in the direction of God. Then gratitude becomes thanksgiving, wonder becomes adoration, regret becomes confession, and responding to need becomes intercession’. (Page 133)

If you would like us to pray for you or someone you care about, Prayer Requests can be sent to our Prayer Circle by a number of means;

Whenever and whichever way you attend you will be equally welcome. For those attending in person there will be the option of receiving Communion physically, in one kind. Please be assured that if you receive spiritually then in solidarity with everyone attending online you will still “truly eat and drink the Body and Blood of our Saviour Christ”.

If you do attend in person please observe the precautions which will be advised to you as you enter the church in order to keep yourself and others safe. These include:

  • wearing a face covering, unless you are exempt, and sanitizing your hands (there are two sanitizing stations at the entrance),
  • maintaining appropriate physical distancing both within your pew and by not using the ‘closed’ pews (ie every other pew).
