Weekly Prayer List

Our Prayer List is edited by the Parish Secretary and continuously updated throughout the week. Names are read aloud each Wednesday at the Healing Service and on Sunday during Intercessory Prayers.  Request for Prayer can be emailed to  or you can fill out a prayer request form found here or in the pew racks.

Intercessory prayer is hard work, but it is a work of love. It is carrying those we love and long to be healed on our hearts, and taking them mysteriously and wonderfully into the very heart of God.
