How can we pray for you? In the diocesan offices we meet each weekday to worship and pray together. If you have an urgent need for prayer, for yourself or for someone close to you, we would love to hear from you, and will include your request in our daily prayers.

We don’t need details – God already knows your needs – but a simple Christian name and some brief details will enable us to pray for you. Please send us a request to let us know how we might pray for you.

We also publish a diocesan Prayer Diary each month. This may be used by individuals or churches during services as, together, we share in prayer.

The Diocesan Prayer

Almighty God, source of our hope and all good things; you call us in love to share in the work of creation in making all things new.

Bless our diocese: may we be faithful in our worship; confident in our discipleship; and joyful in our service; that, through us, the world may catch a glimpse of the love you have for each one of us, made known to us in your son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
