  • Friday morning prayers weekly to bless our local community-at The Manse garden, Kirkoswald at 9-30am

    Why not join in on Friday mornings to pray for the local community?
    It is a positive way of praying - especially in the current Coronavirus situation.
    We try to meet as a small group, outside in someone's garden, overlooking the community. The Manse is opposite Kirkoswald Methodist Chapel.
    You can also pray from your home or your garden (great to hear the birds as well!), or find some other quiet spot nearby. Suggested prayers are attached as a PDF file upload - click on 'view attachment' below.
    If coming for the first time,or you have any other queries, contact Keith Speck: Tel: 01768 898257
