Afternoon prayer at home during this isolation
There are 14 sets of readings (see page 3) and each service consists of scriptures of preparation; confession; one reading from Isaiah; a Psalm and a New Testament reading; a creed; and ends with prayers. The idea is that there is quite a lot of choice as you use the service sheet - you choose ONE of the various Creeds, sentences of scripture etc. The service takes 20 – 30 minutes depending upon how long you meditate and reflect after each of the readings and how much prayer and silence you decide upon. Some may find this a very helpful option in place of some of our other midweek activities.

"Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude; an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God."
A.W.PinkChristians can't function as followers of Jesus without prayer. Prayer is simply talking with God. As a church, we want to prioritise prayer in all we do - individually and together. Prayer doesn't have to be complicated - in fact, it's better if it's not!
- Sunday mornings: 9.40-9.55am. We meet to pray for the morning service, and encourage people to come and pray when they can, and go as they need, between these times.
- Friday mornings: 8.45-9.30am. We meet to pray for a variety of needs in the church and community.
- Tuesday afternoons: 5.15-5.45pm. For quiet mediative worship and prayer
