Private Prayer and Contemplation
St Andrew’s is open every day for private prayer and contemplation.
You are welcome to come in and sit in silence in the main body of the Church, in the Chapel or the Quiet Room.
In the Chapel you will find a prayer board where you can write a card requesting prayers for an individual or situation on your heart. We’ll use these prayers at our Evening Prayer services in the week and keep the card on the board for a month.
There is also a candle stand in the chapel and you are welcome to light a candle to represent any prayer you would like to make, silently or our loud. These votive candles represent our desire to bring our concerns to God.
