Our minister attended a Freedom in Christ course some years ago and recently went to a three day Freed to Lead event led by Rod. Having shared about this, the Elders are keen to explore how we might make use of these excellent resources to help us all in our journey of discipleship, finding freedom in our relationship with God through Christ Jesus.... More details will follow.

Prayer Ministry Team

Our team is on hand every Sunday to pray with people after the morning service. Please come up when folk are free, or if you would rather stay in your seat we could come and pray with you there.

Prayer Box

A red box is in the lobby area for prayer requests to be dropped in any time – these will be prayed over in confidence and then destroyed.

Lord Teach Us To Pray

If you ever feel totally inadequate for the task, when faced with the great needs, both in our own nation and throughout the world  - a resource which is very helpful is the Care Prayer Diary.

If you are unfamiliar with the work of CARE (standing for Christian Action, Research & Education), their calling is to be ‘Making A Difference For The Sake Of The Future’.


Equips individual Christians in the local church.

Impacts the political world.

Provides briefings for parliamentarians.

Trains Christian graduates through the leadership programme

Supports the vulnerable through caring initiatives.

The Prayer Diary is published quarterly and covers such subjects as Education, Marriage, Relationships, Exploitation & Children, Issues in Politics, Society & Culture and the Church’s Mission to name but a few.

Copies of the Care Prayer Booklet are available at the back of church or alternatively at

If you would like further information about the work of Care, please visit

In the words of A W Pink: “Nothing is too great and nothing is too small to commit into the hands of the Lord.”
