‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’ (Philippians 4:6)

We believe prayer is the bedrock of all that we do at St Paul’s. While prayer is a part of all our work and life, we urge all St Paul’s members to try to attend our monthly joint prayer meetings with our sister church, St Alkmund’s:

When: First Wednesday in the Month.
Timing: 7.30pm for 7.45pm start (drinks served from 7.30pm)
Venue: Either St Alkmund’s church hall, or St Paul’s church (keep an eye on the notices!).

Why Prayer Meetings?

Praying privately is part of the core of Christian discipleship, but praying with other Christians is a key mark of the church, and  should be the desire of every Christian, as we praise God and bring our lives, church, communities and world before God.

I’m too shy to pray!

Praying is talking to God – he knows our hearts, thoughts, prayers, even before we pray them!  But it is good to be encouraged by hearing other Christians praying, and be able to encourage others by your prayers, but you won’t be expected to pray out loud, if you are uncomfortable doing so.
