Prayer is a key part of the life or our church

The Saturday Prayer Group

8.30 am on the first Saturday of every month at 32 Lynch Hill Park.  

Tim and Dorrie Bilson host a prayer time in their house every month.  We start promptly, meet for one hour, and pray informally.  We might begin with a reading from the Bible or a song to help us focus our thoughts and turn to God. We ask God to show us how we should pray and have the expectation that he will guide our thoughts and our prayers as we begin to express them.  The common themes in our prayers have included; the unity of Christians in Whitchurch; the businesses in the town; and the schools and young people.  We expect to be able to look back in months and years to come and see the continuing effect of the prayers of God's people just as we enjoy, if unconsciously, the fruit of those who have regularly prayed for this town over the years.  If you would like to know more, please contact Tim & Dorrie Bilson on 01256 893103.

Sunday Morning Informal Prayer

A small but strong group meeting every Sunday morning at 9.15am (for about 20 minutes) to pray.  It starts with a bible reading and the Lord's Prayer and finishes with the Grace. We pray mostly for the 10 o'clock service, but there are no limitations and people there pray for whatever is on their minds.  We meet in the Hirst Room in the Church Room.

Prayer Triplets

A prayer triplet is simply a group of three people who meet regularly to pray together. Regularly could be weekly or monthly - there are no rules - it is up to the group to agree where, when and how often they meet together. For more information please contact Catherine Geddes 01256 895920 or email her here

Compassion Tree

Come and visit our Compassion Tree (in the north aisle).  Take some time to think, meditate or pray.  If you would like to add a prayer to the tree, others from the church will be interceding for you.  And please do feel free to read the prayers left by others, and pray for them also.
