Midweek Opportunites for Prayer and Worship

Did you know about these services of prayer and worship?

Would you like to start your day by offering it to God once a week with others? Each Thursday at 9.00am a fairly informal service of Common Worship Morning Prayer is held in the Lower Asset Rooms in All Saints’ Church. At present a handful of people gather when they can but we would be delighted if others would like to join us for half an hour at the beginning of the day to worship God and pray about the issues and concerns, large and small, local and general, that are on our hearts. (If the main door is not open come round to the side door). You will be very welcome. For more details contact Steve Bellamy, Barbara Mapley or Graham Scott-Brown.

Also, on the first Wednesday of each month at 10.00am is the only midweek service of Holy Communion in All Saints’ Church according to the Book of Common Prayer, at present. It is a simple, said service with a short talk in the Pye Chapel and takes about 35 – 40 minutes followed by refreshments in the Barber Rooms. Support for this is very varied from just a couple of people to a dozen but the reality is that, like most things, if it is not supported it may be discontinued or changed, which would be a shame. It is a lovely peaceful oasis at the beginning of the month to draw near to God with the beautiful traditional words of worship. Consider making it a New Year’s Resolution to come along and see what a special service it is, and bring your friends too. For more details contact Barbara Mapley.
