Prayer

We encourage everyone to develop an intentional and life‑giving routine of prayer, and to become involved in the prayer life of the Benefice. We support this by organising prayer events: quiet days, prayer days, a week of guided prayer, individual guidance on prayer, teaching on public and private prayer, and opportunities to pray regularly with and for others. There is a strong home‑group tradition within the Benefice, with meetings throughout the week for Bible study and prayer. The healing ministry plays an important part in the life of all three churches, with special services each month and regular times of prayer.

Prayers of the Month

Light

 

Shining God

even the darkness is not dark to you

shine in our darkness, light of our lives.

 

When we walk in the grey gloom of confusion

when pain drains all the colour out of life

when we are paralysed by the darkness of fear

shine in our darkness

 

When we know that others are walking in the darkness

give us courage to be light for them.

Love

 

Love is all around us,

in creation, in little acts of kindness,

in your abiding love for us.

However old we are,

however new you are to us,

may we breathe in that love

and breathe out your Holy Spirit,

so that love is all around,

is all around.

Amen
