prayer 700


We recognise that prayer is to the life of Christ Church and the foundation of everything we do. It is the main way in which we express our dependence on God, seek His guidance, and ask for His blessing on all that we do in His name. 

As part of our unfolding Vision, we long to be more passionate and committed to individual and corporate prayer at Christ Church. We recognise that if we long to see growth and transformation in the church, then it begins with each one of us.

As well as prayer in our small groups and services, there are many opportunities to join in with prayer in the life of the church

  • The Prayer Tree  is a group of church members who are committed to praying for the needs of the church family who pray. If you have a prayer need/request or would like to join the tree, email or telephone the Parish Office. 
  • The Prayer Cross is near the Welcome table at the back of church and you can write a prayer request on post-it notes on the cross, and we will pray for it during the week. 
  • Prayer for our services Join us between 9.30 -9.50am every Sunday, at the back of the North Aisle to pray for our services and Discovery Groups. 

  • Prayer Ministry. After each Sunday 10am service, there is an opportunity for anyone to pray in confidence with members of our prayer ministry team, if they have something or someone on their heart for which they would like to receive prayer.

  • Prayer Central is our monthly prayer meeting for the whole church. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the church from 10-11am and 8-9pm to seek to discern together God's will for us and to pray for all the different aspects of our church's work in the community and beyond.
