What’s happened to the Prayer Chain?
In 2016 the Prayer Chain will take on new life as the Prayer Circle. It continues to be a Ministry that offers prayer support in a totally confidential manner.
How does it work?
The purpose is to offer pastoral care, through prayer support, for those with specific needs. There is no need to give anything more than the name. If you wish to say more, the briefer the better (e.g. health/relational/anxiety) but we really do prefer to pray for the person holistically knowing that God alone understands all our needs.
Give the name of the person needing prayer by:
(a) texting Anne – 027 2006020
(b) ringing Anne – 520 2861
(c) place note in box in Gathering Area
Anne will then set the circle in motion, so that all the members will pray.
Who will be praying for you?
The circle members are invited by the parish’s clergy team for a one year appointment. Annually the clergy will prayerfully consider the membership of the group ensuring a mixture of experience, continuity and the provision of a new ministry opportunity for some… plus ensuring a sabbatical for those who are so good at praying without ceasing. Prayer Circle team 2016 Co-ordinator:- Anne Mercer Members:- Anna Brown, John Pearce, Julie Mercer, Lynne Trenwith and Shivanti Mather Any information you provide will be treated in strictest confidence.
At no point will it be available to anyone outside the Prayer Circle.
