Prayer is at the heart of our life as a church. When we pray, we are communicating with God, through words or actions, or in our hearts.

Social Justice Programme:
A Prayer for Carers' Week, 10-16 June
The life of care is often wearying, life-sapping, hope-draining,
And then love comes again in a touch, is reawakened in a glance.
We pray for those who care and those who are cared for.
And we pray that we may be a community of care open to the overwhelming love of the God who accepted tender care as a vulnerable human person, and shared in the concerns and care of friends and followers. We pray that those who care in our community will know that their community cares for them.
60th Anniversary of HM the Queen's Coronation
at the hands of priests and prophets
you anoint your chosen servants with the oil of gladness
and strengthen them with the gifts of your Holy Spirit:
accept our joyful praise as with united voice
we give thanks for the long and glorious reign
of our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth.
Renewing your blessings, pour on her your choicest gifts,
and on all your people the spirit of humility and mutual service
shown in the life and death of him who is the anointed King of all,
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Prayer is central to our link with the church in Sudan. Often, the first things that we are asked for in any situation are prayers, given in a true spirit of fellowship.
We operate a diocesan-wide prayer network which works via e-mail. Regular monthly prayer requests are sent to anyone who would like to receive them. If you would like to join our prayer network or log a prayer request, contact the prayer co-ordinator by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org

You may like to pause for a moment, whatever you are doing, and remember God’s presence with you now.
What is before us in life we know not, but this we know:
That all things are ordered with unerring wisdom and unbounded love by You, our God. Grant us all in things to see Your hand;
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
- Charles Simeon
