Prayer Chain

Our prayer chain is the spiritual alarm system which communicates and takes prayerful action on the needs of our congregation, churches in our circuit and community. The importance of our prayer chain is that it faithfully intercedes on behalf of others in need by lifting up specific requests, concerns and emergency situations. It consists of a network of people who are willing to receive prayer requests and thanksgivings and forward them to the next available person in the chain, and whom will then pray for each request. If you want something or someone prayed for urgently please ring Beryl Collard 01344 412092, and she will make sure your prayer request is passed on in confidence to all the other members of the chain.

Prayer Days

Several times a year we hold prayer days for the life and ministry of the church and community. During these days you are invited to listen to music, or reflect on the prayer stations or just come in and pray quietly. People can come along for as little or as long as they are able to.

Ideas for Prayers

Many people find prayer hard. Pray without Ceasing was an initiative set up by the Methodist Church in 2005 and continues to be a resource where you will find many suggestions for prayers in Church and in your day to day life, together with links to other resources.

A Word in Our Time is a daily bible study linked to the Methodist Prayer Handbook and offers commentary, explanations and questions on the day's prayer. You can either read it on their website or download a podcast for listening to on your computer or MP3 player. Visit their website to find out more.

Post your Prayer Requests

If you, or someone you know, are in need of prayer, we will be glad to help.
All you need to do is to email your request to and it will be taken up and held in prayer before God on a regular basis and in complete confidence.
