Exploring Prayer

Prayer is a conversation with God … and a conversation needs to be two ways. It is important that we talk with God but also spend time listening to his word to us.

We believe prayer is important. We pray as a Church when we meet together for worship, we pray in small groups at different times and as individuals at home. There is a prayer book in church where people can write the names of those who may be in need of our prayers for healing and wholeness. These names are included on our weekly news sheet for use in the prayers in church and available for everyone to pray at home. We also have a prayer box in church where people can leave their own written prayers and names of those for whom they want more private prayer. These are not included in public prayer and are only passed on to members of our healing prayer network, who include them in their private prayers.

We regularly pray for the streets within our parish, remembering all those who live there, and also all the organisations, businesses and community events. Prayer is the foundation of all we do and draws us closer to God.

If you want to explore prayer further you could join us in church or have a word with the Vicar. There are also some good online resources which might help you.

Lost in wonder prayer labyrinth

The Methodist church has produced an online prayer labyrinth. A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool which guides you on a prayer journey, drawing closer to God.
