Prayer

In these troubled times, we have a loving and unchanging God who cares for each one of us as human beings. St Andrew’s Church, Histon, would like to pray for you and your loved ones.

If you would value prayer, please email prayer@standrewshiston.org, and we will pass on your request to a team of people who will pray. If you would like someone to pray with you over the phone, please include your contact number in the email and a member of the prayer team will call you as soon as they are able to.

We will not share your details with anyone outside the prayer team, and our policy on confidentiality is contained within our Safeguarding Policy.

Resources

Here is a list of resources to help us all in praying over the coming weeks, do have a look at them and see what works for you.

Time for Reflection

In these days our times of prayer and reflection are a vital part of the pattern and structure of our lives (of course they always are but we are even more aware of just how important they are now). Mary-Jane Jorden has kindly put together a sheet on ‘Quietness’ which we hope you will find useful.

Morning Prayer

There will be several of us praying at 9.30am each day using Common Worship Daily Prayer. Do join us by saying Morning Prayer at the same time wherever you are.

Midday Prayer

Along with the Salvation Army we are encouraging everyone to stop and pray at midday each day.

Night Prayer

If you would like to say Night Prayer then we’re encouraging people to say it at 9pm.

Obviously these times might not work for all of us, but please don’t let that stop you from praying. Find out what time and in what way works for you. 


Normal Times

Prayer is seen as very important for all the other activities which St Andrew’s is involved in. In normal times there are many different opportunities to be involved in the prayer life of St Andrew’s that are suspended at present

Daily Prayer in the Saint Andrew’s Centre

We meet for prayer each weekday during term time at 12.30pm in the Upstairs Hall at the Saint Andrew’s Centre. All are welcome to join us for a quiet, reflective time together. We especially hold before God those who have asked for our prayers. If you would like a particular person or issue to be included in this prayer meeting please email us a prayer request

Early Morning Prayers

For early risers we hold a prayer meeting at 6.30am on Thursday mornings at 3 Water Lane, Histon. We pray for the needs of the church and community. Coffee/tea and croissants are provided. For more information contact David Wilson on 01223 574774 or email davidcwilson@ntlworld.com

Prayer Central

An evening of prayer for both Histon and Impington Churches held once each month and open to all. The day varies from month to month to enable as many as possible to participate. See the diary page for the next session.

Refresh

An evening of prayer and worship focussed on our Sunday services. All are welcome and we specially invite those involved in services as musicians, intercessors, leaders, preachers, readers and the prayer ministry team. The day varies from month to month to enable as many as possible to participate. See the diary page for the next session.
