The Parish Prayer meeting lasts for 30 minutes and is usually led by one of the clergy team. At the beginning of the prayer time any particular topics for prayer are noted. These are usually relevant to the church in Saffron Walden but can also include areas of concern which are further afield, in the nation and in the world.
This is followed by a time of open prayer when anyone is free to pray aloud or just pray in silence for the issues raised.
