Prayer Resources

This page contains prayers and intercessions for personal or group use, special prayers for use if it isn’t possible to meet in church, which can be downloaded, printed, and shared with those remaining at home or who are unable to access the Internet.

These resources are offered to help those who are struggling to find words at this difficult and stressful time, and to enable Christians to worship in solidarity with one another even if it is not possible to gather in church.

A PDF document of a variety of prayers for you to use are available here.
