Reading and prayers

Image of Prayer at St Werburgh SpondonWe encourage as many people to participate in worship of any age, so if you think reading in public is your thing then ask to become part of the readers’ group. Likewise we often incorporate what are called intercessions or bidding prayers into our worship.  These are prayers which specifically focus on the needs of the world and mean our worship is relevant and focussed where it needs to be.

We have a range of people who write and offer prayers in a number of styles, if you’re interested then speak to Fr Julian.  Those who write and lead intercessions generally spend a half day a year together on a quiet day thinking about this important ministry and getting / sharing ideas.
