Morning Prayer takes place in St John the Baptist Church at 0830 to 0900 every weekday morning. Do come along, and give it a try, if you can.  It is led from the Church of England’s format for Daily Prayer, and contains bible readings, canticles, appropriate local, national and international prayers, and will often feature a reflection on one of the readings. Every Tuesday, some of those present usually go on for breakfast or a drink at the Westbourne Café!  Join us then, if the 8.30am Morning Prayer is too early! Everyone welcome.
