The purpose of Salvation Prayer is to create a space and focus for Christians to come together and be intentional in praying for the salvation of friends, family, colleagues and others.
Using a biblical prayer approach, it seeks to: ignite a passion for praying for the lost, provoke people to consider strategies to reach the unsaved, build faith through the word of God and move Christians into mission and evangelism, starting with prayer.
Please bring along at least 5 names of people you wish to pray for.
It will be a time of experiencing a greater awareness of God’s presence, stripping us of every hindrance and empowering us to move in His authority.

Take a break from the busyness of life and come along for an hour to still your mind and enjoy an oasis of calm.
Regular practice of mindfulness has been shown to bring profound benefits for health and wellbeing, particularly helping with anxiety, stress, depression and chronic pain. When practised in a Christian context, it can become a contemplative spiritual discipline, helping us to be more aware of the presence of God.
The Christian Mindfulness Practice Group meets to practise mindfulness in a Christian context, with different mindfulness exercises and Christian meditations. It helps to have some experience of mindfulness, but it isn’t essential. New members are always welcome.
The group is for you if you:
- Long for some time to be still and regain a sense of calm to connect with God
- Want to learn how to renew your mind and let go of negative thoughts, worries, and anxiety
- Struggle with the stresses of work, family commitments and pressured pace of life
The group is also for you if:
- You’re curious about how mindfulness can really help deal with stress, anxiety and depression
- You find it difficult to concentrate on mindfulness on your own and would like the support of a guided group
- You’ve done some secular mindfulness, but want the greater spiritual depth of practising it in a Christian context
Here’s what group participants have to say about it:
‘I really enjoy Anne’s mindfulness sessions. She creates a calm and meditative atmosphere and I am learning to concentrate and remain in the moment. Her voice is soothing and yet gently probing; helping us to block out extraneous thoughts. I always emerge with my back straighter to find a world that I seem to see afresh.’ Alison B
‘Since starting to practise mindfulness and coming to the group, I have found I am able to stop, look and listen to life around me, realise that this is “now” and all there is. It steadies my thoughts and improves my ability to make decisions. It is good to sit quietly with others who are doing the same exercise. The discipline of being led in contemplation is so much easier that when practising alone. It has certainly led me into a steadier and more “right thinking” attitude to life.’
