Talking to God.
We believe that prayer is a vital part of the life of a follower of Jesus. As a church family, we encourage one another to build a habit of regularly talking to God throughout daily life.
We also believe that praying together is important.
There's no need to wait for an organised event or meeting to pray with others but we do have a couple of regular large-scale prayer events for everyone to get involved in (see below for details).
We also make space to pray together as part of our Sunday morning meetings and there's Wednesday Morning Prayer (7.30am - 8am) every Wednesday in term-time. A link to join this is sent out in the Sunday email. There's also usually a City Group (or several!) who meet weekly to pray together.
Week of Prayer.
A week focusing on prayer.
However, wherever, whenever.
Because prayer is important, we set aside three one-week blocks each year to particularly put prayer at the top of the agenda.
Our next Week of Prayer is likely to be in September.
The exact format and timings of the organised sessions vary but the Week of Prayer is likely to include several one-hour events praying together, an extended time of communal worship, and an all-age, activity packed session of praying together (usually on Saturday afternoon).
A global prayer event.
ENOUGH is organised by a team from Relational Mission (our family of churches) and is an opportunity for us to pray in community with churches and individuals from over 40 nations.
The next ENOUGH event is on Friday 12th November 2021. Details of how to get involved will be available nearer the time.

Regular prayer updates.
Praying for one another.
There is a prayer requests mailing list, set up at the beginning of the pandemic to facilitate staying informed about people's health in City Church and so praying for them. This list continues to send out occasional emails.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are feeling ill and would like to be included in prayer requests.
