Requesting prayer in the Benefice
All three of our Heathfield Benefice churches are usually open during daylight hours, and anyone is welcome to come and spend some time in the quiet and peaceful surroundings.
In each church is an opportunity for anyone to write down a prayer request, with as much or as little detail as you would like. These prayers are kept for about a month, and as well as individuals praying they will also be shared at our weekly Saturday Parish Prayers.
- All Saints' has a 'Prayer Net', where prayers are written on the cut out fish and hung on the net
- St George's has a 'Prayer Tree', just inside the porch, where prayers can be hung
- St Richard's has a 'Prayer Board', where prayers can be pinned
Saturday 'Parish' Prayers
Each Saturday morning at 9am we gather in St George's (2nd & 4th of the month) or St Richard's (1st, 3rd & 5th of the month) to share in 30-minutes' of prayer and reflection. Each session is led by a rota of different prayer leaders who choose a theme for the week.
Anyone is welcome to come and join in these sessions; and we always finish with coffee, tea and biscuits!
