Prayer underpins our whole church life, individuals pray, groups pray, we pray in our worship, in small groups, and in all our activities. Below are some opportunities to pray with others and some ‘intercessions’ you might like to use along with our monthly prayer card. There are many fantastic websites to help us pray, such as thy kingdom come and 24-7 prayer.

Meditative prayer

An opportunity to experience the Bible in a deeper way as part of our current focus on prayer. Meditative prayer will be offered in the Emmaus Chapel from 9.00-9.30am on the 3rd Saturday of every month. This will involve a led meditation on a gospel passage where we use our imaginations to enter more deeply into the scripture and encounter God in a personal way. Any questions please contact Diane Davidson or Caroline Oldroyd.
