Prayer is an important part of all of our services. If you would like to include someone on the prayer list, to be prayed for during the services, please contact the parish office. At Christ Church there is also an opportunity for people to pray with us after the service in the Lady Chapel.


If you know someone who is sick, lonely, housebound, or would just welcome a friendly chat, then please contact the almoners at the three churches, who are there to help:

St Mary’s – Beth Scott

St Peter’s – Viv Talkington

Christ Church – Jean Woodruff

Prayer group

A group of people from all three churches started to meet early in 2013 to pray for the parish, particularly the interregnum and the process of finding a new vicar. This group is continuing to pray for the parish. All are welcome to join us, we meet on a Monday evening fortnightly at 8pm for about an hour. Please check the weekly sheet for the date and location of the next meeting.

Prayer chain

A prayer chain works by having a list of people to whom you can pass prayer requests. Prayers can be for someone having an operation or getting a new job, or anything else you’d like others to pray for. If you’d like to send us your prayer requests, please speak to your almoner in church, or contact the office.
