We believe in the power of prayer. We speak to God and listen too. In all we do at St. Andrew's we seek God's will prayerfully before making decisions.
As a result of praying for God's vision for St. Andrew's, we have decided to begin Prayer Walks, where members of the church will pray for our Sedgley whilst physically being in the streets for which we are praying.
We have a Prayer Diary, used by members & friends as a basis for daily prayer. For each day of the month, there are named streets and organisations in Sedgley for which we pray; also a prayer topic for the day. In this way, we are holding Sedgley before God and seeking God's blessing on all who live and work in the area.
We have a Prayer Room and hope to be able to have it improved soon and to keep it open during the day for anyone to pray quietly.
We have a group that meets monthly to offer prayers for those who need healing in any way.
There are two Prayer Meetings during the week, both on Tuesdays: the morning meeting, starting at 9.30 am, usually includes a hymn or song, responsive prayers, readings and a time of "open or quiet" prayer; the evening meeting 'Open Prayer - Open to All' starts at 6.45 pm. Its format varies, sometimes responsive, sometimes reflective, always prayerful. Both meetings usually last for 30-40 minutes, and all are welcome.
