Brian Heasley, whose book "Be Still" is in the All Hallows Church Library, writes ....
".... I had faith and I had doubt. I had to learn to live with both but I had to choose which one to feed and cultivate.......I fully believe that prayer - a devotion to relationship, encounter, and conversation with God -is the root of all we do..
Jesus actively sought out times and places to pray: he went to the desert, to the mountain, to the garden, to the temple. His prayer life had intentionality, and that intentionality was fuelled by desire to spend time with his Father."
I so appreciate my prayer triplet. We have a WhatsApp group and share requests for prayer or thanksgivings or just matters of interest! We are so glad to be able to meet again in our houses – a cause for rejoicing! Are there a couple of friends that you can imagine praying with? Why not give it a go? If you are interested but can’t think who you could pray with then contact Catherine Geddes who may be able to put you in touch with someone else who would like to pray like this.

Friday Prayer for Young People

This was born out of an appreciation of our grandparent’s generation praying for us and we wanted to pray for our children and young people in the church. Do please join us. If you are new to the area and would like us to pray for your children, please contact me. We have first names only and name each child and young person and bless them in Jesus Name.

Contemplative Prayer & Julian Meeting
First Sunday of every month.
Our monthly contemplative prayer meeting currently takes place via Zoom conferencing. Contemplative prayer can be described as: "Waiting upon God; listening for God; opening ourselves to God; responding to the invitation to meet God in silent awareness. The prayer of the heart. In contemplative prayer we seek to be aware of the presence of God and to remain silently and attentively in that presence, completely open to God." Our meetings take about forty minutes, thirty of which are spent sitting together in silence. In normal times we sit by the font, at the moment we sit together using Zoom. It may seem like a strange notion to join a Zoom meeting just to sit in silence but experience has shown that it works as an act of collective prayer. We see the others in the meeting and we know that we are together in God's presence. You would be welcome to join us, the details of the Zoom meeting are below. If you would like to ask any questions about what we do and why we do it then please email email@example.com
