Join us if you can to come together at some point every day again this week to say daily prayers.
Whenever and however you prefer to pray, you can download some resources here which you may find helpful – as usual, there are two orders for Morning Prayer – one a formal liturgical order and one an informal framework. We have also added an order for evening or night prayer knowing that some poeple like to pray at the end of the day instead of – or as well as – in the morning! The prayers are again themed around what the lectionary suggests at this time of year – but feel free to change these for your own concerns at any time!
You might notice that the readings change from the usual order on Mondy and Friday this week – this is because Monday is the day when the church remembers and celebrates St Peter and Paul in particular and Friday is the feastday of St Thomas and the readings reflect this.
Sts Paul and Peter were key leaders in the early church and so this time of year – Petertide – is traditionally the time of year when most clergy ordinations take place. This year, those preparing for ordination have had to begin their ministries as licensed lay ministers as their ordination services were unable to take place due to the currne restrictions – do remember them in your prayers this week.
We know some of you feel you are joining in with others more when you are able to say prayers along with someone else at the same time. So, over on our Facebook Page, one of the staff team will be saying prayers on the following days and times this week (it will be live but you can watch the video afterwards if you miss it!) Do join us if you can.
Monday – Evening prayer – 5.30pm; Tuesday – Morning Prayer – 9am; Wednesday – Morning Prayer – 9am; Thursday – Evening prayer – 5.30pm; Friday – Morning Prayer – 9am.
