Candle

It goes without saying that prayer is at the heart of all we do at St Mark’s. The act of bringing our community and our world before God is where two elements of our vision meet - ‘Worshipping God’ and ‘Sharing his love’. As such there are a number of prayer ministries at St Mark’s involving dozens of volunteers.

Prayer is offered for those in need at almost all our Sunday and midweek services, both for the unwell and the bereaved. If you would someone to be prayed for publicly at St Mark’s, please contact the Parish Office or write their name and yours in the black folder at the back of church.

There is also a prayer stand in the South Aisle where you can light a candle and say a prayer, before or after any of our services.

For those who would like to receive prayer for healing in person, our Healing Prayer team regularly offers this opportunity at our Sunday services. In addition our Prayer Circle is on hand to receive both urgent and long term requests for prayer, which it passes on confidentially to its members.

Prayer is not just for the difficult times, though, and our Prayer diary reflects this. This is a leaflet, published each month, which encourages us to pray every day for a wide variety of people, places and events, both in our community and the wider world. You can sign up for this Prayer Diary to be emailed to you each month using the sign-up box to the right of this page. Or why not visit the sacred space website to download a special prayer for each day?

Finally, for those wishing to pray specifically for the work of the church, for its mission and outreach to the community there is Prayers for Mission; the next meeting will be advertised here.
