Lift Them Up
Quarterly on Tuesday 20:00 to 21:00
A short gathering to pray for those who are sick, or in need of prayer, set within the context of a simple shared communion and sung worship.
Starting in 2021 this gathering was born out of a recognised need for us to pray together for the sick, being aware of many connected with St James' who were suffering in one way or another (and not only because of Covid).
The title comes from James 5:15 – 'And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up'. The primary aim is to pray for others, and this is done through writing up names on a board as well as open extemporary prayer, although there is also an opportunity for participants to receive prayer themselves. There is no pressure for anyone to pray out loud if they don't want to, and the overall feel is fairly contemplative.
Weekly Prayer for Children & Young People
A chance to gather every Wednesday during term from 3 to 3:30pm in church, to pray for our children, young people, their families, the groups we run, and our local schools.
This informal get together underpins much of what we do during the week to support the children and young people of our church, schools and local community.
This time of prayer is brought together by Bethany, our CYP Worker.
