Prayer is a major focus in our lives at St Mary Magdalene

Heavenly father, help us be a growing family of Christ’s followers, united, committed and inspired by your love to know you and to make you known. 

Each week, after the Sunday services, members of the Prayer Ministry team are always available to pray with you for any particular need. 

St Mary's Ring of Prayer

We can never pray enough and when there is an urgent need, there can't be enough people praying. For this reason, we have a Ring of Prayer. If you have an urgent prayer request -contact us and the request will be passed around the chain. Call Felicity Smith - Julia Gwyther

Call back when your prayer is answered.

24/7 Prayer Week

In May 2010, we held a week of continual prayer - aimed mainly at praying for our mission partners - This was an inspiring week for many of our church family and we are repeated this in September 2011-as we began our journey in the newly reordered building. We continue to hold prayer weeks annually in September 

The last  24/7 prayer week was at the end of September 2014 and the next one is scheduled for September 2015.

If you would like to be involved please conact Angela Cattell or Mike Stewart

Prayer Sessions are held throughout the week -

(please see the weekly Church news for current details).

Regular sessions are:

                             Saturdays at Church at 8.30am

                             Bi-monthly, preceeding the PCC meeting at 6.45pm in the James Chapel

                             Prayer for Youth work each Tuesday morning

Prayer Walking

Prayer walking around the parish happened from March 2013 to Summer 2014  - groups  met in pre-arranged roads and prayed for the residents , delivering cards to each house inviting responses. Every road in the parish was visited.  We hope to repeat this in the near future

The Prayer Tree

At the back of the Church, is  a Prayer Tree and you are invited to add your prayer requests as a leaf on the tree.


Often we are moved to think more about certain issues by listening to others
