Prayer – talking and listening to God – is an important part of the Christian faith and part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Prayer can take many different forms.
Prayer during Sunday Services
Each Sunday we pray by name for those for whom prayer has been requested, as well as for the family and friends of those who are recently bereaved and whose funeral service is about to take place. We use the St Chads Prayer Diary to pray for each street in our parish and for different parts of our local community. If you are in church you would be welcome to light a candle as a visual reminder of your prayer.
