Prayer

Intercessions

We say prayers in all our services, often led by members of the congregation. If you feel called to lead our prayers please speak to Godfrey.

 

Prayers for the Community

Each week we remember those who live in specific streets in Southwater.

 

Prayer chain

The prayer chain responds quickly to those in urgent need. If you need prayer for yourself or someone else, please speak in confidence to Pat Chapman on 730420 or Godfrey on 730229 giving as much or as little information as you wish, if possible with the knowledge of the person being prayed for. The request passes quickly along the prayer chain, so that, within minutes, our prayers can bring comfort, love, support and healing.

Prayer stations and 24 hours of prayer 

Once a year we set up prayer stations in the church and grounds offering a different approach to the way we pray. Members of the congregation pray for a continuous 24 hour period to see where The Holy Spirit leads us.

 

The Julian Group

Normally the Julian Group meets at 10:30 am on the first Monday in the month in a village home for an hour of quiet prayer, contemplation and meditation. Inspired by Mother Julian of Norwich we sit in silence, or with quiet music playing listening for God’s word. Find out what to expect at a Julian meeting here.Further details are given in Southwater News
