The Ministry of Prayer at St Mary’s

Regular Prayer Activities

    Prayer may be for yourself or on behalf of another.
  • There is a prayer corner in the Lady Chapel with a box for prayer requests and candles to light
  • A Prayer Group meets for about 45 mins most Mondays at 6.45pm to pray together for the community (Fairford as a town and the Church Community) and also praying for the requests that have been placed in the prayer box in the Lady Chapel and Park Close Stores. Anyone is welcome to join in with this.
  • There are also several bible study /house groups taking place in Fairford. One on a Monday evening, another on a Tuesday morning, and one that Kathleen and Sarah run that meets roughly monthly. If you want to know more about these then Denise Hyde (01285 713285) is the person to talk to.

Prayer and Healing Group

This is a small group (7 people) who meet monthly to look at ways of encouraging and healing people on their spiritual journeys and to pray together.

  • They are regularly involved in the Prayer in pairs at the 10.00am service and 6.00pm Healing service on the last Sunday of each month.
  • They are also involved in the actual running of the Healing Service, leading, reading, intercessions, chalice.
  • They manage the prayer corner in the Lady Chapel - the prayer request box, and prayer cards for people to take away.

Thank you for your love and compassion and your constant presence with us. Help us to live in the light of your holiness and love and may your truth and holiness pervade our whole lives.
