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

This is the Good News –

the grave is empty,

Christ is risen.

Halleluia!

 

This is the Good News –

the light shines in the darkness

and the darkness can never put it out.

Halleluia!

 

This is the Good News –

once we were no people,

now we are God’s people.

Halleluia!

 

Christ is our peace,

the indestructible peace

we now share with each other.

God of glory,

we sing your praises, this special day.

Halleluiah, risen Lord!

Halleluiah, love triumphant!

Halleluiah, Redeemer, Saviour!

May the joy that we feel

create a wave of peace and celebration

which washes away doubt and fear

and brings hope and reconciliation

to a broken world

and a new beginning for humankind.

Amen.
