Prayer

“God does nothing except in response to prayer.” - John Wesley

When we pray God changes things. Prayer is vital to our lives as Christians and therefore it must be at the centre of everything we do at St Mary’s. We want to intentionally make space for us to grow together in prayer.

These prayer meetings are held bi-weekly and are led by different members of the church.  We make space to be open to the Spirit and pray for the topics the Holy Spirit leads us to.
Sunday

 Prayer ministry is  available at the end of the 11am and 5:30pm online services.
These are some of the events we hold  in the church building and around London when we are back in the church building.
 These are opportunities to ask God to come and transform our lives, city, nation and world.
A few times a year we all come together at St Mary’s to pray for the life of our church.
These evenings include extended times of worship, space to be open to the Spirit and
creative forms of prayer.
Stay tuned for information on the next meeting.
This is run by John Peters from 7.30-8.30 am every Tuesday morning in term time on the Lower Floor at church. There is a time of worship followed by a short bible study and prayer for the life of the church. There is then breakfast in a local cafe for those who don’t need to dash off for work.
For the time being we will be holding these Monday - Friday Online. Click here
We encourage our Small Groups to go out and pray for their local area and we invite those with a passion for this to join them. This is an exciting opportunity to stretch ourselves as we follow the Spirit. We begin by meeting together and then go on to intercede for the area in twos or threes as we walk. Afterwards, we meet in a bar to share stories over a drink.

The early church met daily in their homes to pray. We want to follow this pattern of prayer. Several times a term people meet together in someone’s home to seek God's kingdom. These are (obviously) much smaller gatherings and a great chance to go deeper in prayer.
Our next date is coming soon!

Every year we join with church's around the world to pray around the clock for 'God's kingdom to come' in the run up to Pentecost Sunday.
