We like to think we are a prayerful parish here in Wilmslow and this feels particularly important in our increasingly busy and frenetic lives.
All of us need time and space to reflect, find peace and listen to God. These days many people come to church because they feel in need of some simple mental and physical space, calm and peace.
We have ‘Prayer Chains’ and ‘Prayer Partners’ – systems where people take responsibility to pray for one another both regularly and for particular situations or at times of crisis.
Prayer happens each week in our services and many people are involved in writing and reading the intercessions in church. Prayer in a variety of forms also happen in some of our Home Groups and we have prayer groups which meet regularly.
Sometimes specific teaching on prayer and how to do it happens as well.
