PrayingWhere:
Small Hall

When:
Wednesday 8pm

Who we are:
We are a small group of mothers and grandmothers who meet every week to pray for our children and any other children who might need it.

What we do:
We sit in a semi-circle and on the table before us is the cross, in front of which is the basket for the names of the children, and on either side the Bible and a lit candle.

The format used is that of ‘Mother's Prayers’ founded by the Solace Community. It lasts about half an hour and is a series of short prayers and readings from the Bible:
