St Augustine’s has a strong belief and culture surrounding the importance of prayer as an absolute foundation in everything we do.
Prayer Ministry Team
We love to offer to pray for people during and after our services, either for themselves or on behalf of someone else. Members of our Prayer Ministry Team have received training to support others and are available around service times.
There is also a prayer list held in confidence. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to the prayer list. People on this list are prayed for by our Prayer Ministry Team and can also be prayed for by name at our services (if you choose).
There are a number of organised prayer events held throughout the month, usually held in the Lantern Room, with church leaders encouraged to attend at least one weekly prayer meeting.
- Morning Prayer – every Wednesday at 8.30-9am
- Prayer Breakfast – Worship and prayer followed by bacon and croissants (7-8am twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays)
- Monday Evening Prayer Meeting – 7.30-8.30pm (twice a month on the Monday following Prayer Breakfast)
- Pray for Partners – a small group meets once a month to pray for their non-Christian partners to come to faith. (2nd Wednesdays 12-1pm)
Please check times and dates on the calendar.
Our Prayer Room is a quiet space for prayer without distraction, for use by church members at any time. For more information, please email email@example.com.
