We are here for our Community in times of need and can provide Pastoral Care through visits, prayer and fellowship. Our clergy and Pastoral Care Ministers are available to visit you to listen, pray and support you at any difficult times. In our time of transition without a permanent Parish Priest, please contact Canon David Steven 01208 815 393if you or someone you know would appreciate a visit from a member of our team.
Essentially, prayer is at the centre of our ministry. We have 2 prayer mornings and one prayer evening per week (see services) which you can come along
Ephesians 6:18New International Version (NIV)
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Have you ever wondered what we get up to on these evenings? Well, it’s quite simple really. We usually have a “study” of some kind, either looking at a book of the bible or at a particular topic for about an hour. It’s very informal and involves plenty of discussion followed by a short time of prayer. We then have coffee and biscuits and a good old chat, aiming to finish at 9.30ish!
It’s a great way to get to know people better and to “look out” for each other in a pastoral sense. We also, hopefully, grow in our faith and understanding of scripture.
We usually meet twice a month on a Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. We currently have two groups running and we’d love to welcome some more members so why not think about joining one of the groups. You won’t be asked to read or pray out loud or be “put on the spot”, as some may think. You don’t even have to join in the discussion-it’s fine to just sit and listen. Above all it’s great fun!
If you would like enquire about joining a house group, please contact our Reader, Roy, located here.
