The Church of England website
helpfully offers an introduction to daily prayer, and morning
prayer services are uploaded for each day.
Alternatively, why not download pray-as-you-go
daily prayer resources to your MP3 player or phone, and listen to them on your way to work?
A regular pattern of daily prayer - even if the prayers are quite brief - enables us to meet life's challenges with a stronger faith in God's loving care. Even so, we all experience times of anguish and crisis, and it can be encouraging to pray with others, or to know that others are praying for us.
The clergy are happy to pray with you at church, to visit you at home or hospital or to bring you holy communion.
When we are ill or distressed, it can be helpful to have hands prayerfully placed on our head or shoulders. It can also be helpful for a priest to anoint us with holy oil. Anointing the sick (or those in distress) is one of the seven sacraments of the church. The Sacrament of Healing
is available during communion on the last Sunday of every month, except August and December, and when this Sunday falls on Easter Day. Wel normally receive the sacrament of healing in two parts:
The laying on of hands with prayer
The anointing with oil
These are just a few ways of praying for health and wholeness. If you would like to experience the church’s ministry of prayer, please contact the clergy at the Parish Office
on 020 7221 3548.
If there is any other way in which we might be able to give you pastoral support, please let us know.
