St. John The Divine, Outwood Common, Billericay

Prayer & Praise

Prayer is central to the life of St. John’s. We have an informal Prayer & Praise meeting on Wednesday evenings between 5-6pm on Zoom.  This was set up during Covid and we have continued ever since.

Prayer for the church family and the local community

We pray for our church members, their friends and family and the life of the community of Outwood Common and the people who live here.

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, grandparents and carers who support them.

We pray for everyone who attends our non-worship activities, including those who come to our Café, our Film Nights, Small Wonders our toddler group and our Midweek Break over 60s Club.

We pray for all who come to use our premises for non-church activities, including Billericay Foodbank and the Brownies.

We pray for all who live next door to us at Anisha Grange, and the staff who care for them.

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 email Amanda
