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