Prayer & Worship

Everyone is entitled to either a burial service or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard [if available] by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. We are now able to offer the burial of ashes in our newly consecrated Garden of Rememberance.

We have a wonderful tradition of singing when we are allowed(!) are have a superb organ [one of the best in Manchester] which can be used for weddings, funerals and worship.

We celebrate the Christian year, especially at Christmas and Easter and enjoy the use of colour and candles in our prayer life.

We read the Bible in depth through the year using the Lectionary of the Church, in Sunday service and Bible Classes, particularly in Lent and Advent. We add to this with the occasional sermon series such as "Jesus Shaped People" and "Frontlines".

We pray for others in intercession and in our prayer and healing ministry. Please see a minister if you would like help with this.

Each Sunday, cards from the prayer stand are written by any who wish, to remind us of those in need. We remember those we know and those we don’t, as we remember Jesus’ love is for everyone.

Jesus was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him,
"Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples."
He said to them, "When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins,
for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us.
And do not bring us to the time of trial."

- Luke 11.1 - 4

We offer prayers at our Thursday morning prayers and during our Sunday services, remembering concerns we have - personal and public - for ourselves and for the world.

We will aim to include your prayer request, as appropriate, in our services of worship.

We offer prayer for healing and also individual prayer – please ask.

Please know God hears all our prayers, wherever we say them and however weak we feel our prayer to be.
