Prayers are offered as part of all our daily and Sunday services, but the church is also open for private prayer every day, currently from early morning to mid-afternoon.
The Lady Chapel (at the front of the Church on the left behind the glass doors) is kept as a quiet place for private prayer, and you can light a candle if you wish. If you would like the Church to pray for you or for any person or situation, then there is a Prayer Board just outside the Lady Chapel where you can write your requests.
May we invite you to listen to some short recordings produced by the Vicar: a series on The Lord's Prayer and some meditations on the phrases; some Powerful Prayers, that have spoken to Derwyn on his Christian journey and which he hopes will speak to us; a series on some of the Psalms, and other passages from the Old and New Testaments, with prayers.
The Stations of the Way of the Cross and the Stations of Easter – The reflections in church are available here as an A5 printout, in case you’d like to revisit them.
Daily Hope free phone line – DailyHope, a free national telephone line, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of the phone.
A Church of England initiative in partnership with CONNECTIONS at Holy Trinity Claygate, and Faith in Later Life.
The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind; to provide comfort and spiritual nourishment to the most isolated in our society.
In our services we pray for healing for those who are sick, especially for those known to us. If you are ill at home or in hospital and would like a member of the clergy team to visit you, and/or if you would like your name to be added to our prayer list, please contact the Parish Office.
NOT DURING CORONAVIRUS - In addition, there is an opportunity for personal prayer, for giving thanks, for healing or for other matters at the end of the 10am service. Please go to the Lady Chapel where two members of the Church will be available to pray with you.
