As well as our daily times of individual prayer it is good to pray together as God’s family. The times listed below are occasions for us to meet for prayer with others.

If these times don’t work for you we may be able to create other ‘spaces’ to meet together. Just as we may sometimes eat alone, or with our immediate family, at others we join with friends or a larger family gathering to eat and to enjoy time together. It is good to meet together with our Christian brothers and sisters to share our concerns and our joys. So please contact Don, me or another member of the Prayer AG if you would like to meet in this way at another time.

  • Monday to Friday 9-9.30am in the Lounge.
  • Monthly on the third Monday at 7.30pm in rooms 3/4, we meet to pray for God's blessing on St Mary's church family and ministry, as well as current topical situations, national and international.
  • Second Wednesday of each month, at 10am in room 2 there is a missionary prayer meeting.
