  • Friday morning prayers weekly, to bless our local community at 9-9.30am. Currently meeting online.

    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. At the moment we are meeting online via Zoom to pray together.
    (Normally we try to meet as a small group, outside in someone's garden, overlooking the community. But 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 wanting to join us, or any other queries, contact Neil Kennedy : 01768 898431 Email: neilmckennedy@googlemail.com
