Christians pray. It’s what Jesus did, and so it’s what we do. We pray for nations, for communities and for people; we pray ‘thank you’ for all the good things in our lives, ‘sorry’ when we mess up and ‘please’ when we’ve got things to ask of God.

And we would be delighted to pray for you - whether it’s for something big or small and whether you come to church or not. If you would like someone to pray for you, please get in touch. You can call the Church Office on 01580 211739 or email There are also boxes in St Mary’s and Christ Church where you can leave a written prayer request.

We also have people available after the 10:45 service who are available to pray with you every week - just turn up and look for the people with the “Prayer Ministry’ badges.

We meet every week on Tuesday mornings in St Mary’s to pray for the community, and at least twice a year we run a day of training and support for anyone wanting to go deeper into prayer. You can find details of the next Prayer Training Day by emailing
