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.

Just as we might 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.

Regular prayer opportunities include:

  • Morning Prayer: Monday to Friday 9-9.30am in Rm 2.
  • Monthly Prayer Meeting: third Mondays of each month, 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.
  • Missionary Prayer Meeting: second Wednesdays of each month, at 10am in room 2 there is a missionary prayer meeting.
  • Frinton Mission prayer breakfast: first Saturdays of each month, 8.30am in rooms 3/4 - for further info contact Cate Wilby on 671791.
  • Celtic/contemplative prayer: for further information, contact the church office.
  • Prayer for Nathan Edgell, Alex Bryant and his sister Jessica, all serving God with YWAM in Australia, on second Saturdays of each month, 9.30am in the Church Lounge - for further information, contact Tricia Hamilton on 676376.
