Prayer


An important part of Christian life is a rhythm of prayer, corporately and individually, through the day, through the week, through the year - through our lives.
 
As well as our main Sunday services there are opportunities to pray together within both liturgy and open prayer.
 
Morning Prayer
 
In the church, all welcome.
 
Monday at 9:00am- 9:20am
 
Tuesday at 9:00am-9:20am
