Praying with others - this section will be updated after the lockdown (24.03.20)

Outside the regular services there are opportunities to focus on God with other Christians.

Morning Prayer is said in St John's church on Monday and Wednesday at 9 am

On Tuesday morning at 9 - 9.30 am in St John's porch there is a time of meditation. This is a reflective time spent waiting on God to see what He is saying to His church. There is an introduction with guidance on how to use the silence, then some silent time and ending with a reflection.

On Thursday mornings at 9 - 9.30 am in St John's porch 'Celtic Morning Prayer' follows a daily office from the Northumbria Community. Set prayers and readings found in the office book often seem highly appropriate for events in that week. Funny how God does that!

Prayer Triplets Most of the 45 minutes per fortnight is spent in silence or listening. There is no need for people to say anything unless they feel moved. At the Northumbria Community we learned about the simple practice of Centring Prayer and this is how we spend the first 15 minutes. Next comes 15 minutes of intercession using a list of people who are sick or in need. The final part is praying for each other, which can be in slience or using words depending on the wishes of the people in that triplet. All conversations are strictly confidential.

If you think you might be interested in spreading the network of prayer in our communities, please contact our priest in charge.
