Prayer Ministry

A Bible, open to the Psalms, on which large black letters have been placed spelling out the word 'PRAY'.

As Christians, we believe in the power of prayer to an Almighty God who is intimately concerned with our welfare, in good times and bad.

Within St Paul's there are two specific Prayer Ministries to which you can turn.

The Prayer Cordon

This is where one email or call from you will allow us to share quite quickly your prayer requests for emergencies and immediate concerns. It is sent to a group of around 50 church members who will provide a ‘cordon of prayer’ to surround each situation offered in prayer. By using email and telephone calls we can keep members of the cordon updated as necessary to maintain the prayer support when there are ongoing needs.

The Prayer Ministry Group 

This is where more confidential items can be shared within a trusted group of some 15 members. All those in the prayer ministry group have committed to offer intercession in times of need or distress. The group will not share the concerns more widely unless the requestor gives permission to do so or, it someone’s personal safety or wellbeing is considered to be at risk.


We hope to be able to offer this ministry in the Chapel after services again, as soon as it is safe to do so.  Because of the more confidential nature of this ministry we do not follow up the initial request unless requested by you to do so.

How Can I Request Prayer?

Items for prayer can be submitted or discussed in the first instance with Ian Rodgers. Please send an email to

or by phone on 07907 196497.


If you would prefer that something remains confidential, please let us know.
