Prayer

Prayer lies at the heart of our relationship with God and so it is also at the heart of all that we do as a church community.


Prayer is just speaking to God and yet there is no ‘just’ about it: we pray not on our own, but in the name of Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We would love to encourage you to get involved in prayer in the life of this church. Here are the key ways you can do that.


Prayer meetings

Our monthly prayer meetings are our most important gatherings besides our Sunday services. We meet to worship and to pray for each other, the church and important issues around the world. 

They are held on the first Wednesday of each month with supper at 7pm with prayer running from 7:30 - 8:30pm.

The next three dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday 10th January
  • Wednesday 7th February
  • Wednesday 7th March

Prayer Ministry

God has put us together in the family of the Church to help and support each other and one of the ways we do this is through prayer. We believe passionately in the power of prayer and that God wants us to draw alongside others who have a need, whether that is for physical, emotional or spiritual healing, for guidance or for anything else.

There is prayer available at the end of each Sunday service. Speak to someone wearing a Host Team badge; they will be happy to pray with you. If you would like to make a prayer appointment outside of the services with one of the team just email tim.jones@holytrinityclapham.org


Encounter

Once a term we meet to seek God’s presence in extended worship and prayer. These are agenda-free evenings where we allow the Spirit to lead us as we move through the evening.  


Time 8pm
Date For individual dates please see our Calendar.

Taizé

Once a month we hold a Taizé-style service. composed of meditative singing, Bible reading and prayer and times of silence. Join us on the third Monday of each month, everyone is welcome.


Morning Prayer

We can pray as individuals wherever we are and at any time but we have a small gathering for morning prayer at 9am in the church on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays we have a lunchtime communion service instead at 12:30pm with a soup and bread lunch afterwards.

HTC Prayer Points

As a church, we encourage you to have a daily time with God reading the Bible and praying. To help you read the Bible, try downloading the Bible in One Year app which we are suggesting for all the church to follow in 2017. Pray with us every day by downloading the PrayerMate app and following the HTC prayer feed, instructions can be found in the link. This will give you something to pray for everyday in the life of the church and help structure your own prayer times.
