As you are no doubt aware, public services in the Church of England have been suspended until further notice. As a consequence, there will be no ‘corporate prayer’ in our church buildings for the foreseeable future.
As the need for prayer in these times is greater than ever, we have decided to set up a Virtual Prayer Group, led by Rachel, our rector, to pray together at certain times, wherever they may be, for the needs of those in our Parish and the wider world.
Due to the hygiene issues associated with filling in a prayer card, walking to your nearest church and popping it in a box, then the box being emptied by another person, we have decided to encourage online prayer requests.
If you would like to submit a prayer request for the Prayer Group to bring before the Lord, please click here to be directed to a page where you can provide the necessary details.
You may, if you prefer, ring Rachel on 07944 992178 but please be aware that she is exceptionally busy at the moment and it would be most helpful if you could submit your request online.
You may submit online prayer requests on behalf of folk who don’t have access to the internet but please make sure that you have their consent to do so first.
The information you provide will only be shared between Rachel and the members of the Prayer Group (and, of course, our Lord and Saviour).
Please help to make this a successful venture which we would hope to continue beyond the current crisis. I am sure the Virtual Prayer Group would be very happy to be overwhelmed with requests!
