Prayer is a way of talking (and listening) to God. Here is our handy leaflet on prayer
We meet at various time to pray.
24 hours of prayer
Have you heard of the 24/7 prayer movement? The idea is that people pray over the course of 24 hours and then we see where we are led next by the Holy Spirit.
Come and join us as we share the joy of prayer.
Silence can be moving
Monday Morning prayer
We meet for a said service of psalms, prayers and time to reflect in the church. if sunny and warm, we'll be found outside the church - with God's beautiful creation.
We have a weekly prayer group which meets most Saturdays at 9:30 in the Vicarage. We share prayers for our church and the concerns we have for our village and the world in which we live. We may pray around a theme or topical issue, often using scriptures and a variety of other inspirational materials to provoke thought, discussion, and (of course) prayer.
You are very welcome to join us.
The Julian Group
Once a month, a group meets for one hour of quiet Christian prayer, contemplation and meditation. Inspired by Mother Julian of Norwich we sit in silence, or sometimes with beautiful music playing, and quietly reflect as we listen for God's word. It is a chance to be still and spiritual in this busy world as we hope and wait to feel the presence of God.
What can I expect at a Julian meeting? Some answers to this question may be found here.
Meeting details are given in Southwater News but we usually meet in a village home at 10:30 am on the first Monday in the month.
We have prayers in our services, led by members of the congregation. If you feel you have been called to lead our prayers please contact Godfrey.
Prayers for the village
Each week we remember and pray for everyone who lives or works in a given number of roads in the community. The latest list is always in Southwater News.
A team of church family members pray in response to a person's need (in complete confidence).
Please do get in touch if you want to find out more - or wish to be prayed for.
Some people welcome the opportunity to pray each day, following a structured pattern. The links below will take you to a simple service of Bible Readings and prayers, which can be said alone or in a group.
