Prayer:

Friday prayers at St Andrew’s is a key time of prayer taking place in our chapel

Prayer is central to our church life throughout the Chase Team. Regular midweek prayer meetings in each church offer opportunities for praise and meditation on scripture, as well as intercession for a wide variety of personal, community, local, national and international concerns. These are valuable times for building faith, fellowship and discipleship, and rejoicing together in answered prayer.

Midweek prayer times:

Monday/Wednesday/Friday prayers 8:30-9am at St Mary’s
Wednesdays 9am-9:30am at All Saints
Fridays 9:30-10:15am at St Andrew’s.

Prayer Chain:

Our Prayer Request Co-ordinator receives and sends out prayer requests via the Team Prayer Chain. The answers to prayer which are frequently shared testify to the faithful commitment of many, who regularly pray and intercede for a wide variety of difficult and serious personal issues. Faith is built as we see God at work, changing lives and circumstances.

Monthly Prayer Diary

We produce a monthly prayer diary which gives daily prayer items for our churches and for Malvern.

Advent Prayer Room

Prayer ministry

The opportunity to receive prayer is offered at the end of morning services. In addition prayer teams offer ministry at the monthly ‘Deeper’ services, held at 18:45 for 19:00 at All Saints.

Prayer weekends

We regularly have extended times of prayers twice a year – at the start of Advent and before Pentecost, as part of the worldwide ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative. During these times we have a dedicated Prayer Room, often having hourly slots over a 24 or 48 hour period to sign up to pray in, and times of organised communal prayer too.

Children from our church schools sent in lots of their prayers during ‘Thy Kingdom Come’

The Prayer Room provides a space to pray in a relaxed, comfortable but stimulating environment with various aids to guide and help and many are surprised just how quickly the hour slot goes!

 

As part of the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer last year we went out prayer walking around our parishes and collecting prayer requests from members of the public which we then prayed for back at church. Our local church schools were also very involved in providing prayer requests and making prayer bunting to decorate our prayer room.
