Intercessions

person lighting a candleIntercessions is the word we use to describe prayers for people, places and situations in the world which need our support.

They form part of a service and are prepared and led by different members of the congregation and ministry team.

If you have a suggestion for a prayer to be included in the intercessions, please contact the Rector, the Revd Andrew Doye on (01243) 372867 or by email to westbournechirector@gmail.com   

Requests for prayer can still be sent to Revd Andrew Doye in this period.

The Church of England has also created a web page with prayer resources
