Prayer Resources

Praying at all times and for all things is the way we are told to live; and the good news is that prayer is real and it works! During this time of great challenge and anxiety we are called to prayer. Download these recommended apps from your preferred app store or click on the link for further information.

Lectio 365 is an easy-to-use way of meditating on the Bible that's been used by Christians for centuries. Each day we read the same passage twice, expectant that God will speak through it into our lives.

Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to help you pray whenever you find time.

Time to pray is a traditional worship app with everything you need. Follow a simple pattern of day or night prayer that varies according to the season and day of the week. It has guidance on sustaining a pattern of regular prayer.

Tel: 01903 709163

The church will open 15 minutes before each service. In order to maintain social distancing numbers are
quite restricted (we have calculated approximately 30 people at present in St Mary’s) therefore you will
need to register to attend prior to the service. You can do this by email to office@goringbyseaparish.org
or if you do not have e-mail by telephoning the Parish Office 01903 709163. You will receive confirmation
that you are registered for the service.

For tracking and tracing purposes the government guidance asks that we hold a register
of names (for 21 days) of everyone who attends each service. Please do not just turn up for a service,
as we may have to ask you to go home if we have reached capacity. Please think carefully about
whether or not to attend if you are vulnerable or in an at risk group. Please do not attend if you are
unwell, particularly if you have Covid-19 symptoms.
