Times to Pray

Morning Prayer. A small group meet in the church every weekday morning at 9.30am (except on Wednesdays) to say Morning Prayer from Common Worship. (Wednesday - Holy Communion 10am).

A Time to Pray is held every week on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm for half and hour in the Lady Chapel. There is also an opportunity to meet with others for prayer on Monday afternoons at 2.30pm - details on front of weekly pew sheet. Please join us at any of these times, as we pray together for the church, the world and ourselves.

Prayer Card - we have a prayer card available from the back of church for use in private prayer. We hope you will use this at convenient times as we pray for our community, our parish and for the Spirit to guide the right person to come forward to lead us.


A book for prayer requests is kept on the communion table.

Services of Daily Prayer Online

For those of you unable to attend services The Church of England provides services to be used daily in the morning, the evening and at night so you can join in by saying the prayers on your own or in small groups at home or elsewhere.

The services include psalms, bible readings, and prayers. To help you join in, the full texts (in modern language) can be found by following the links below. Make your choice of service and then scroll down through the service, reading both the minister's part and the responses at your own pace.

Please be patient as the files can take a long time to download and will open in a new window.
