Prayer Groups

Prayer is central to the life of St. John’s. We have two informal Prayer Groups which meet within the church. Twice a month on a Saturday morning we meet to pray for our church members their friends and family.
Weekly on Monday evenings we meet to pray for the community of Outwood Common.

Prayer for the church family

On the first and third Saturday of each month we meet at 9am to pray for our church members and the friends and family.
We keep notes of the topics about which we have prayed. We always give thanks to God for the ways in which He has answered our prayers in the previous few weeks, before praying for the individuals about whose needs we are aware.

If you would like us to pray for you, please come along on any 1st or 3rd Saturday, and we will do that.

Prayer for the Community

Most Monday evenings we meet at 8pm to pray for the life of the community of Outwood Common and the people who live here. (Occasionally due to other commitments this meeting does not take place.)
We pray for peace in the streets of Outwood Common. We pray for all who live in Outwood Common, but do not worship with us, whether they worship at other churches, or choose not to attend church at all.
We pray for the children who attend Sunnymede School, their teachers, their parents and grandparents who support them.
We pray for everyone who attends our non-worship activities, including those who come to our café, our film nights and our Midweek Break over 60s club.
We pray for all who come to use our premises for non-church activities, including the Brownies and Guides, and those who come to Slimming World.
We pray for all who have come to live next door to us at Anisha Grange, and the staff who serve them.
