Prayer is the lifeblood of any church...

House of Prayer: 'When the Church becomes a House of Prayer, the people will come'. During a series of evenings in May led by Alan, we were challenged and inspired to give prayer a more central place in our lives.

Prayer Corner St AndrewPrayer Space

In St Andrew's, we have a prayer space where people can post their prayers on the prayer tree and light a candle. Every member of St Andrew’s is encouraged to pray through a very short daily office (prayers to begin and end the day). Copies of these prayers can be found in the prayer space, which is to the left as you come into the church.

Prayer before the Sunday service

Everyone is also invited to pray before the Sunday service in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel from 10.00am.


There is a monthly prayer meeting called Breathe, to which everyone is welcome. We meet in the St Andrew's Centre, behind the church, on the second Saturday of each month. Breakfast is served from 8.00am and we gather for prayer at 8.30am. Dates for 2017 are: 14 Jan, 11 Feb, 11 March, 8 April, 13 May, 10 June, 8 July, 9 Sept, 11 Nov and 9 Dec.

Laying on of hands

Laying on of hands for healing is offered at the midweek service on the first Wednesday of each month and at the 10.30am Sunday service every third Sunday of the month.

Meditation & Mindfulness

There is also a Meditation & Mindfulness Group that you are welcome to come to. From September 2017 we will meet twice a month at St Andrew's, on the first and third Wednesdays evenings at 8.00pm. Each session lasts for about 45 minutes. These times explore the beauty of silence and the rich traditions of Christian meditation. We start with some gentle exercises to help still the mind and then guided meditation followed by a time of silence. Beginners are welcome. Dates from September 2017 are: September 6, 20; October 4, 18; November 1, 15; December 6.

Prayer Group

There is a confidential prayer group in the parish. Please contact us if there is something or someone you would like us to pray for.
