Thursday Morning Prayers and Reflection

We hold a regular Prayer session on a Thursday morning which can be attended in person or by Zoom. If you would like to request a prayer or volunteer to commit to praying regularly at home, and receive a prayer list please email

We meet in the lounge at 11am for a short act of worship. We bring before God the names of those known to have special needs, anxieties, distress or sickness.

On the fourth Thursday of the month the prayer meeting includes Holy Communion, usually conducted by the minister.

After our Thursday prayers we usually gather in the forum for coffee/tea and social time.

Prayer requests can be left in our prayer box in the Forum at any point in the week.
