Focus on Prayer

Please note:

There is no need to sign up for any of the events or the creative prayer space in the church! All of these events are held on a drop in basis – please feel free to come by for whichever events work for you, and whenever you can during the opening hours of the creative prayer space.

You can, however, sign up to pray with us virtually – if you’re away from Rio, while commuting or travelling, during midnight feeds, or while washing the dishes, for example. This way, you can join in with the prayer week from wherever you are! If you would like to pray virtually, then please:


Details of all the events are below:

Creative Prayer Space – Monday to Friday
From the 5th – 9th, from 11am until 7pm, the balcony in the church building will be open to drop in and engage in the creative prayer space. A number of “stations” will be set out in the balcony to help us all engage in prayer in different ways. Or, just come and make the most of having some quite space to pray and reflect. Feel free to drop by as often as you wish during the week. Please note that unfortunately the balcony is only accessible using the stairs.

Morning Prayer – Monday to Thursday 
From the 5th – 8th, a short morning prayer service will be held at 7.30am in the church Chancel (up at the front of the church building).

Tuesday Morning Prayer & Bible Study
Our usual Tuesday (6th) morning session will be held at 9am in the Chancel.

Tuesday Afternoon Service
A short afternoon prayer service will also be held at midday on Tuesday, also in the Chancel.

Winter Nights Midweek Service – Wednesday
Our weekly Winter Nights service will be held in the Chancel on Wednesday 7th at 7.30pm, with a special time for prayer for healing.

Kids Prayer – Thursday
On Thursday 8th at 3pm we’ll have a space in the church designated for families and children to join in prayer activities together.

Night of Prayer – Friday
From 8pm until midnight on Friday 9th, we will hold a Night of Prayer in the Chancel. We plan to include times of prayer and worship together on the hour every hour, with space for reflection, meditation, prayer alone or in small groups, and creative prayer throughout the night. Come for part of the night or stay up with us for the whole evening!

Sunday Service
The coming Sunday (11th) service will continue the new mini-sermon series, and have time set aside for prayer for healing.

Virtual Prayer – whenever and wherever!
If you’re not in Rio this week, or can’t make it to any of the other events, don’t worry – you can join us in prayer by
