Prayer is the bedrock of all that happens here.
We hold together many different traditions of prayer at St. Mary’s, St. Andrew’s and All Saints, and in addition to corporate prayer during liturgical services we offer:
Fridays 9.30 - 10am. South Chapel Extemporary Prayer for our Church community and beyond. We pray for the on-going work of the benefice.
During Café Church which follows prayer ministry for individuals is available.
Tuesdays 4.30 pm for an hour. Silent Prayer at Salvation Army Hall, Duke Street.
We join with our friends from other Churches.
Sundays after 10.45 Eucharist. Healing Ministry in Lady Chapel.
Prayer Diary. Daily prayers for our community - a copy available for everyone. Please ask either Welcome team or office.
Those who are now unable to attend church, who are housebound or in residential care are prayed for regularly, again on Friday mornings.
At various times prayer and home study groups meet.
Contact office for up to date details of days and venues.
During the year we offer Retreat Days.
Last year we held a successful Painting and Prayer day at a nearby village church and church hall, led by our own ministry team and local artists.
During the week we offer ongoing prayer for our work with children and young people.
Porch Project, Frogs, Tadpoles, Open the Book and St. Mary’s school.
We especially remember them from where we are, maybe at home or work, at the time they happen.
At the entrance to the South Chapel, reserved for quiet prayer, there is a candle stand for those who may wish to light a candle in memory of someone dear to them or to pray for a particular concern or situation.
Inside the South Chapel there is a book in which to write requests for prayer. These are prayed for on Friday mornings.
