Community of the Annunciation Prayers

We meet every Thursday evening at 7pm in St Mary’s Church, Beaminster to pray specifically for the spiritual life of the team and the work we do in all our churches to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Every week we publish prayer prompts to help us to pray and to enable people to join with us in prayer, even if they can’t be with us physically.

We believe that prayer is at the┬áheart of all of our work and without seeking God’s will we can do nothing. We believe that God helps us discern what we should be doing to best serve our communities. We need to listen to him. Our prayer is both silent and out-loud and involves both talking to and listening to each other and God.

Anyone is welcome to join us on any Thursday or join in at home at a time and place that suits them.
