WEEKLY PARISH PRAYER - AT PLAISTOW CHURCH EVERY SATURDAY MORNING
Each Saturday morning at Holy Trinity Church in Plaistow we gather for half an hour of prayer, beginning at 8.30 am and finishing as the clock strikes nine o'clock. Everybody is welcome - whether you have something specific to pray for or not. You can voice your prayer openly or keep it private or simply affirm the prayers of others. It's not a service as such - there are no processions, rituals, hymns or music. We just sit around the big table and pray.
If you would like a prayer said for you or someone else, but can't/won't/don't want to come, leave a note in the boxes by the fonts in each of our church buildings.
