Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God your need, thank him for all he has done. The Bible; Philippians 4:6

Prayer is the engine-room of everything we do at St Mary's.

There are two main opportunities for us to come together as a church family to pray:

1st Priority Prayer

On the 1st Wednesday of every month, we host a 1st priority prayer evening. Our weekly small groups do not meet in the first week of the month to enable us to make praying together our top priority.
When?   7.30-8.45pm

Where?  St Mary's Church

9:00 Mid-week prayer

Come and join us on a Wednesday morning at 9:00am in church where we have a half hour time of Bible reading and prayer.

Asking for prayer

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”

Max Lucado

Prayer is a way of being with God and drawing close to Him to talk and listen to Him. Prayer is also a channel for God’s healing power and love.

If you would like people in the church to pray for you or with you, there are a number of ways of getting in touch:

  • Place a prayer request on the prayer tree which you will find in St. Mary’s church, 
  • Place a confidential request in an envelope and post it through the vicarage door. 
  • Send an email using our prayer email address
  • Speak to one of the prayer ministry team at a 10:45 am Sunday service or to any ministers in Church.
