Facebook Live

Four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) we live-stream our Daily Prayer service on Facebook, which are led by different members of the parish community. Follow the link to our Facebook page to watch and join in.

In an uncertain and unstable time, praying regularly helps us to remain calm and confident in God, who promises never to leave or forsake us.

Christians pray to God. That’s because Christianity isn’t a theory or a philosophy. It’s a relationship with God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Prayer can take many forms. All prayer is being aware of God. Silent prayer is powerful. Words help too. You can use your own words in a kind of honest conversation with God. In this Daily Prayer, we use structured prayers to help us. These words are mostly based on the Bible.

To begin with, Daily Prayer can feel a bit ‘wordy’. But relax. Let the words wash over you like the lyrics of a song. If your mind wanders, don’t tell yourself off. Just come back to the awareness of God who is with you wherever you are.

We use the Morning Prayer of the Church of England. You can simply watch and pray with us. But if you want to participate more deeply, you can follow along using the Daily Prayer app, which is available for iOS or Android or by going to https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/join-us-service-daily-prayer. Follow the ‘Morning Prayer (Contemporary)' link.
