Sunday Morning Prayer on Zoom

What’s Morning Prayer?
The very short answer is – prayer – in the morning! 

But seriously, we get together on ZOOM every Sunday at the moment at 10:00am. 

We listen to some words from the Bible, have time to reflect on them and pray. 

You can join with video on or off, and the same goes for your microphone. 

Some bring coffee, some light a candle, we all sit in comfy chairs and enjoy some time with God. 

There is a specific format, but there’s nothing to ‘do’. You don’t have to say anything at all, or you can chip in.

Please take time to follow the latest advice about churches in our group opening. Look on your church noticeboard or contact your church warden for details.
