Prayers

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NIV)

The act of praying is central to all of our services, both as part of the liturgy and within that, the time for prayers of intercession.

The liturgy which defined by the Church of England is the patterns, forms and words through which public worship is conducted, contains a number of common prayers which form the basis of our services. Our services are taken from Common Worship.

During the period of prayers of intercession, a member of the congregation will lead a period of prayer, praying for a range of topics in the wider world, more locally, and for people and issues that affect our parish.

Prayer for healing or any other issue is available every week after the 10.30am and 6.30pm services in the North aisle area.
