The Heart of Our Church

Sunday Worship

 

What Services are there?


8.30 a.m Holy Communion


This service  is a quiet devotional service with time for silent prayer and reflection. Christians of all traditions are welcome to join us here in St. Gall's to celebrate the Eucharist.


10.00 a.m. Morning Worship

Our main service of worship. On the first Sunday of each month this is a service of Holy Communion. On other Sundays a service of Morning Prayer. The style of worship at this service is more contemporary. A creche is available for the very young and our Sunday Club leave this service to attend classes.


6.30 p.m. Evening Prayer

On the third Sunday of each month we enjoy a Service of Holy Communion. This service has within it a time of prayer for healing and the ministry of the laying on of hands. The congregation are invited to come forward for prayer for themselves or someone they know.


A book of prayer requests is also kept in which you are welcome to write the name of someone you would like people to pray for at this service.


If you would like a flavour of our worship here at St Gall’s have a listen to this extract from one of our services. It is an edited version. There is the sermon and then you can share in a time of prayer ministry. This would be a service we might have four times a year. Music with Prayer Ministry April 2012.mp3


Prayer - A Conversation with God

 

The opportunity to meet with God in prayer is something that is there for each of us. We express it in the worship we share as a family of faith, Sunday by Sunday. We express it in the quietness of our own personal space and time.

 

I hope that you find the following thoughts on prayer encouraging. Ponder a while, reflect for a while. But don't forget that the truth about prayer is that there is no substitute for being still before God and in the quietness of your own heart reaching out to him. Speaking and listening. It's as simple as that.

 

"The path of righteousness is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter till full day" Proverbs 4 verse 18


"You must listen to the silence within and then the great understanding will come, you will understand yourself in the world, and your heart will yearn to the end of the universe, to the bounds of eternity, for that which is beautiful."
