Prayer

candles and iconPrayer and worship are central to all that we are and do at St Bene’t’s. Our common life is rooted in the daily offering of the Eucharist and Evening Prayer. Space is made in our services for silence, and many people value the prayerful and holy atmosphere of the church building, which is open from 7.30am to 6.30pm every day.

On Sundays, our main service is the Sung Eucharist at 10am. All are welcome, and we try to be a place where people’s minds are fed as well as their spirits. There are children’s groups which meet during the first part of the service, before we all join together to receive the Sacrament. Coffee is available afterwards, and many people stay behind to chat and catch up with each other. Newcomers and visitors are always very welcome.

There are many other resources for prayer, and the clergy will be happy to talk to you about them. One way of praying that many find helpful is the Examen, which is a way of prayerfully reflecting on your day and discerning God’s presence in it.

If you, or someone you know, isn’t able to get to church, please contact the vicar or one of the other clergy, who will be happy to arrange to visit, and to bring the Sacrament to you.
