Prayer Meetings

Prayer at Emmanuel

During the services in the week 8.30am, 10.30am & 6.30pm on Sundays and 10.30am on Wednesday we pray for the sick and bereaved by name. 

There is a prayer request book at the back of church and people are invited to add names for people to be included in our weekly intercessions. Please make sure that you have the permission of any person you wish to add to the list.

 

Prayer meetings

These take place on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month. They meet in a parishioners house at 7pm (details can be obtained from the Vicar). The group prays for those whose names are in the prayer request book and other concerns.

 

We also meet for prayer  on Monday and Thursday mornings at 9.30am and Tuesdays at 4pm in church to which everyone is invited. Here we pray for the activities of the church and the week ahead and other urgent needs as they arise. 

Anyone is welcome to come and meet with us. People are free to join in with open prayer or to pray silently.

 

Prayer During Advent & Lent

During Advent and Lent the Vicar leads a weekly reflective prayer meeting to help people focus on preparing for Christmas and Easter. The meeting takes the form of short readings, periods of silence, and some structured prayer. This is an opportunity to take time out from the business of the season, to stop and reflect. Details of these will be available on the Calender and forthcoming events pages.
