PRAYER
 
 
Most us feel the need to pray at certain times in our lives. So, all are welcome to visit the church to pray, and to find silence or stillness, as well as a sense of the presence of God. The church is open each day from 9.00am-5.00pm and there is a part of the church which has both a votive candle stand where you can light a candle(s) and a prayer board where written prayers or requests for prayer can be left. Please feel free to make us of these.
If you would like to speak to someone about any matters of faith, or for spiritual guidance, please contact either of the clergy who will be only too pleased to hear from you. You can also call into church on a Friday morning between 10.30am and 12noon when one of the clergy is usually available.

Morning Prayer: there is a service of Morning Prayer Tuesday-Friday at 8.30am to which all are welcome.

Contemplative Prayer Group:  This meets on most Thursday evenings from 6.15pm-7.15pm. All are welcome – please check with Revd Helen Mitchell as to which dates the group is meeting.
 
Reshape us, good Lord, until in generosity, in faith, and in
expectation that the best is yet to come, we are truly Christ-like.
Make us passionate followers of Jesus, rather than passive supporters.
Make our churches places of radical discipleship
and signposts to heaven, then, in us, through us,
and - if need be - despite us, let your kingdom come. Amen.

Prayers for Syria

No doubt many of us are actively praying for the people of Syria in view of the continuing conflict, but especially at the moment in the light of the recent suspected and horrific “chemical warfare” and the resulting current discussions by world leaders about taking military action.  Many fear what the future will bring.  Please note that St Gregory’s Church is open each day between 9.00am and 5.00pm and there is a area in the church providing an opportunity to pray for peace and reconciliation.  Please feel free to make use of this if it would be helpful to you,  and do let others know as well.    Revd Gregory Webb
