A liberal & inclusive church, seeking God through beauty in our worship, honesty in our faith & doubt, & service in our community

These monthly prayer cycles provide a focus for the prayers of the Christ Church community, both in private and at services. Please use them as suits you best to help you pray for people from within the church and in the wider community - locally, nationally and internationally.

On the second page of the same document are our monthly rotas for readers, preachers, presidents, chalice assistants, intercessors and sides people.

If you are reading and would like to check the text in advance, the Bible reference is included on the rota. The relevant version of the reading can be found on the Oremus Bible Browser (New Revised Standard Edition - Anglicised Edition).
