Here at St Paul's we want to root everything we do in prayer. As one of our two underlying values, Biblical and Prayerful, being a prayerful church means both encouraging one another in our personal prayer lives as well as providing space for us to pursue God in prayer as a church community.



Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come, taken from the Lord's Prayer, is the name given by the Church of England for the 10 days of prayer around the world between Ascension and Pentecost.

We also use the name for all our midweek gatherings which specifically focus on  prayer and worship through the year.




Individual Prayer

Any church is made up of its members rather than a collection of buildings, and our hope is that we would be a community of people who pray and intercede for ourselves, each other and the world.  However you connect, we hope that you will find time and space to draw near to God in prayer. 

Quiet Times

Setting time aside is the first thing we need to do in order to pray. In Lent 2018 Jonathan (our vicar) and Juliet Jee produced some simple booklets for those who haven't tried having a quiet time with God before.

Looking for someone
to pray with you?

Wherever we are in our journey with God, sometimes we all find it helpful to have someone pray with us.  Regardless of if you are a member of St Paul's or not, we'd love to pray with you. When we meet, prayer ministry is available following all of our Sunday services - longer periods of prayer ministry are available through appointment, please speak to the office or a member of clergy for more details.

Whilst we are not meeting in the same way as a gathered church, we'd still love to pray with you.  We can do this via Zoom or by telephone.  Somone from our prayer team will be ready to pray with you immediately after our 10.30 am service or you can arrange another time.  The Zoom link to join them is in the weekly email sent on Fridays.  Alternatively, please contact Jan Pringle ( and she will ask a member of our prayer ministry team to be in touch.
If you would rather not speak in person, but would still value someone to pray for you, you can complete the below form, and it will be sent to our prayer team. Only our Prayer team members and church staff team will receive this prayer request, and it will not be posted in any form to our wider congregation.

The Well Prayer Ministry Appointments

The Well Christian Healing Centre, led by Anne Hibbert, is a place where people of all faiths and none can have prayer for healing, both spiritual and physical. The aim of these sessions is to allow God to speak into your life through his Holy Spirit in order to find breakthrough in certain areas of your life.

Whether you need physical healing or breakthrough in your spiritual life this is for you. This might include having difficulty in hearing, seeing or sensing Him, or issues such as fear, anxiety, jealousy, addiction, bitterness or anger.

During the Covid19 Outbreak, the Well is temporarily closed, but you can keep up to date with what they are offering on their website
