Prayer is the foundation of all that we do as the Church of God together as a body and as individual members of that body.  Prayer is the working out of our relationship with God

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”

St Teresa of Calcutta

You can explore more about prayer at the excellent Just Pray website.  You can also ask for prayer by filling in the contact form on the right or by entering a prayer into the Just Pray website.

Within the parish there are a great many ways that you can join in with the unceasing cycle of prayer that goes on every day in our churches and in people’s homes…

Prayer Chain

We have a chain of prayer that can be used for particular intentions.  The prayer is passed down the chain so that around 60 members of our churches will be praying together.  If you would like to have something prayed for, please contact Fr Martin (phone number on the right) or fill in the form to the right of this page.

Tuesday Prayer Group

A Weekly Prayer Meeting is held every Tuesday evening, from  6—7pm in the Parish Office. Please feel free to call in at any time during this hour.  Please contact the Parish Office for more information.


IPRAY is a digital prayer ministry where you can sign up to receive regular texts with pointers for prayer.  You can read more at the IPRAY website by clicking HERE.

Rosary Group

Every Friday at 6.30pm the Rosary Group meets to pray the Rosary at St Mary, Barnham.  You can find out more from Bradley Smith.

Prayer Calendars

Each month we produce a calendar for prayer, bringing together the Diocesan prayer calendar, the worldwide Anglican Communion prayer calendar and prayers for local places, people and issues.  You can download the calendar HERE

The Church of England Daily Prayer site is an excellent way of building prayer into your daily routine.  There are also apps for you phone & tablet to make it even easier.  You can find out more HERE
