Worship in the local community

Communion is taken to a number of people living in local, residential homes, as well as a number of housebound people living at home.  A short Communion service is also held at the local Age UK, three times a month.

Pastoral Visiting

We have a strong team of pastoral visitors across the Benefice.  They visit members of the congregation who are either housebound or unwell.


PrayerPrayer

We are a prayerful community.  There is Morning Prayer every day.  Personal prayer is encouraged by using the weekly Bulletin, the Daily Prayer sheet, and the weekly Lectionary. If you would like to be prayed for, or you have a specific prayer request, contact Rev Jo Richards.

Prayer meeting

Every month a group gathers to pray specifically for members of the congregation who have requested prayer.  There is a prayer board available in St Dunstan’s and St Mildred's Churches for any prayer requests.  The Benefice has close ties with the local Pilgrim’s Hospice and prays for people who have requested prayer there.

Shoe printsPrayer Walk

Every Monday morning, the Rector conducts a Prayer Walk round the Benefice.  She covers the whole area once a month. Rev Jo Richards spends time specifically praying for those along each street, asking for God’s blessing upon the community.
