Prayer

Prayer Ministry

Prayer ministry is readily available at most of our services from one or more of our Prayer Ministry Team and many people come forward for prayer on these occasions. From time to time we hear wonderful testimonies to healing in answer to prayer. If you have a testimony, please do share it with us as it encourages us and builds up our faith.  Sometimes people may require a longer period of prayer ministry than is possible at main services, and prayer ministry continues to be available, by appointment, at other times.

On occasions we have offered healing prayer beyond the four walls of the church. We have run a “Prayer Tent" at the Morgan Recreation ground during the summer activities held there, providing the opportunity for people to be prayed for and for children to engage in prayer-based craft activities.  We have manned a weekly “Prayer Stop” in the playgound of St Sebastian's School.

We have provided Prayer Ministry training at other churches in the area. It was a privilege to be able to run our training course, and to encourage and get to know other Prayer Ministry teams.

Prayer Requests

We have three methods of dealing with prayer requests - publication in the weekly Prayer Sheet, which accompanies the Notice Sheet, via the email Prayer Circle and via the Prayer Chain.

Please contact Judith Boulton in the Parish Office, if you would like a prayer need to be mentioned in the weekly Prayer Sheet.

Brian Hart administers the email Prayer Circle. Many prayer requests are circulated through this and we also receive a number of encouraging updates of answered prayer.  Brian can be contacted on 01344 772670 or via email.

Penny Thurgood runs the Prayer Chain. This is a telephone only chain and is reserved for very urgent requests requiring immediate prayer.  Penny's number is 0118 327 4247.
