Prayer at St Benedict’s and the Venerable Bede

Prayer is central to the life of our two churches. If you would like us to pray for you or a member of your family who is in particular need please contact the Parish Office who will make the necessary arrangements for your request to be included in our prayers.

Our prayers take many different forms

In our Sunday Services people are prayed for by name as part of our Sunday Worship.
Each Wednesday at Morning  Prayers we have special prayers for those who are sick at Morning Prayer. Many more names can be included than on a Sunday.

At our Prayer Group

At St Benedict’s and the Venerable Bede we have a ‘Prayer for Healing’ group, whose members hold out individuals in need in prayer. The names are confidential to the group.

By the Clergy

The clergy are always willing to include specific people in their own private prayers.
When contacting the Parish Office please tell us which of these you would like your prayer to be included in.

Our Prayer Diary

Each month we publish a prayer diary with different prayer petitions suggested for each day of the month. Our Prayer leaflet is available at both of our Churches for you to take away and use in your own prayers.
