Morning Prayer by Zoom

Every Wednesday at 8 a.m. for 45m

Add to my calendar

The benefice holds morning prayer each Wednesday at 8am. Whilst under more normal circumstances this takes place at Lyminge church, for the duration of winter and lockdown it is being held on Zoom. Wherever held, all are welcome to join in. It is a short service, with slightly different liturgy across a three week rota, depending on who is leading it. We always have a couple of scripture readings and share a short reflection on them between us. However, the main focus is prayers for our communities. If anyone would like to join us, please do. The joining instructions will be published on the hub each week, or contact Deb, Janet, Sharon or the Benefice Administrator Alison Dale ([email protected]) for the link to use. . Alternatively, if there is something you would particularly like us to add to the prayers let us know.
All welcome!

Help to circle our benefice in prayer on the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost this year!
Novena is an ancient tradition of praying for nine consecutive days. In recent years, the Thy Kingdom Come initiative has encouraged Christians across the world to use this time for both personal and corporate prayer, and our own Diocese of Canterbury was instrumental in producing resources for these, including artwork, poetry and prayer.
We are going to hold very formal times of prayer and worship in each of our beautiful churches on each of the nine days of the Novena. Led by various members of our ministry team, we will use the national Thy Kingdom Come resources (this year, based on the psalms) to focus our prayers – bringing the needs of our benefice to God together.
Starting at Lyminge on Friday 14th May, then working anticlockwise around the Benefice, each service will start at 5pm, and last approximately 30 minutes. The full schedule is below.
Fri 14th May Lyminge
Sat 15th May Postling

Anyone from any church or none is welcome to any or all of these services! This is entirely about us, as members of the body of Christ, coming together to pray and worship.
I do so hope you are able to join us! If you’d like further information, do get in touch.
With love and prayers, Deb
