Prayer is vital within the life of St George’s – and we don’t just say that, we really mean it. We seek to be a church that is open to God’s leading through the Holy Spirit and that means we are called to be a prayerful church, one that is both listening to what God is saying and interceding that His purposes would be fulfilled through us.
St George’s has various “rhythms” of prayer, which shape our life as a church:
Prayer among our Life Groups: We have a strong ethos of people praying when they meet as Life groups throughout the month. People pray for each other, for this community and beyond which greatly enriches our time together.
Saturday Prayer: There is a weekly Saturday prayer meeting in the pastoral care room from 8.00am – 9.00am during term time.
Prayer before Services: There is a time of prayer at 8.00am in the pastoral care room at the chancel end of the church.
Prayer within Services: We have different forms of prayer within each of the four Sunday congregations and Wednesday congregation. Some times of prayer may include formal intercessions, at other times we may use interactive prayer.
Prayer Ministry: After every service there are always people available to pray with you. It might be that God has spoken to you personally during the service, it may be that you have particular needs that you want to bring before God. All those offering prayer have been trained to pray with others.
Prayer Chain: We operate a prayer chain for mobilising prayer when particular needs arise. Please contact the church office if you would like a prayer request to be sent round the chain.
