Prayer may be something individual and private or it may be a shared expression of our concerns…our thanks, our hopes and our fears which we lay before God. Here you can ask for prayer and see who and what we are praying for, or you can join in the more formal Daily Prayer of the church.
In our prayers this week: Here you will find names of members of the congregation, family and friends whose wellbeing is particularly on our hearts and minds at this time. There are prayers for church activities happening this week and for situations in our community and the wider world. We hold all these things before our loving and merciful God.
