Prayer and Healing

Prayer meeting

We meet regularly to pray, and we are looking at how we can keep doing this in accordance with current guidelines. We will be praying for the parish and the world. Everyone will be welcome to come when they can and leave when they have to.

Prayer ministry

Members of our prayer ministry team are available in the Chapel after every 10.30am service. They can be identified by their green badges. You are welcome to seek prayer for any reason, whether for yourself or for someone else. This is treated confidentially, under the authority of the Vicar.

Prayer requests

In the Chapel you will find a notebook and a pen. This enables you to request prayers for any reason. Members of the church will pray for the people names and for the situations listed, for the following month.

Prayer chain

We have a chain of people who will pray for particular needs. The head of the prayer chain can be contacted by text/phone and will then begin the process of passing on the request. Details can be found in the church.

Private prayer

In usual circumstances, the church is open every day and the Good Shepherd Chapel is specifically set aside for prayer. There is a CD player with a variety of music, and a number of books, pictures, liturgies and other things to assist you in prayer. Or you may simply wish to enjoy a time of quiet. Unfortunately, we are  currently required to keep the church closed.

Healing Service

On the first Wednesday of the month we usually have a special service at 7.30pm. We seek to be open to God’s Holy Spirit and we pray for healing and any other needs. You may come and receive prayer for yourself, or for anyone and anything that you are concerned about. We hope to restart these as soon as possible.

Prayer is at the centre of who we are and what we do.​
