Morning Prayer Monday and Friday at 8:00 A.M. in All Hallows Church
Prayer is as much about allowing God to change us as it is about asking God to intervene in our lives and in our world.
Morning Prayer is one of the Church of England’s Daily Offices. The practice of praying at certain fixed points in the day is common to many faiths and came into Christianity from Judaism. You can read more about its historical development here. It’s also been important for Christians through the ages that as much as we do want opportunities for extemporary prayer (prayers that you make up on the spot), we also want to pray the prayers of the Church. That way, even when you’re on your own, or in a very small group, you know that you are joining your prayers with countless others around the world.
Prayer is as much about allowing God to change us as it is about asking God to intervene in our lives and in our world. So the Daily Offices include saying sections of the Bible together and hearing it read.
The basic structure is as follows:
You would be very welcome to join us on Monday and Friday mornings in term-time. We meet in the Baptistry (the small room at the West end of the main church building) at 8:00 A.M. The Office lasts for 35-45 minutes.
