We would normally love you to join us for Morning Prayer at 9am Tuesday to Friday in the Lady Chapel. We will let you know as soon as possible when public services resume.
The Church of England has produced a prayer booklet Prayers for use during the coronavirus outbreak and offers a free phone line of music and prayers, 24 hours/day: 0800 804 8044.
If you would like an easy to print A4 version of this, please click here.
But at this challenging time we wanted to let you know of resources that are available online or on smart phones which you might find helpful in your personal prayer life and to help you join in with our worship at Holy Trinity.
- Zoom – this is what we are using to enable people to participate in Morning Prayer. If you would like to join in please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Common Worship Daily Prayer – clicking on the image below will lead you to a page where near the bottom you’ll find something that looks like this:
And if you click on the title (the date will change each day) it will bring you to all the liturgy we are using for Morning Prayer. You will also see below it Prayer During the Day, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer.
The Church of England has a number of Apps available for Smart Phones and IPads: their free ones include Time to Pray and Daily Prayer. Time to Pray has Prayer during the Day and Night Prayer, Daily Prayer has the liturgy we use in Morning Prayer. Time to Pray is also now available as a podcast.
- PrayerMate – This smartphone app is useful for building your own prayer pattern but also enables you to sign up to prayer diaries from a large range of Christian organisations, including the London Diocesan Cycle of Prayer.
- Pray As You Go – this wonderful resource is available in desktop, smartphone and IPad versions and provides a daily short (around 10 minutes) Ignatian-style meditation with music and scripture. They work in collaboration with Sacred Space who also have a multi-platform service. They offer words on the screen which is good for those who find some music distracting.
There are other useful resources such as the Bible App which has a great range of different translations including the King James, and the Bible In One Year which as well as a smartphone app has the option of receiving a daily email, and has audio commentary available. The 24/7 prayer organisation has a range of suggestions to help you pray, and watching the videos in the Prayer Course is a great place to start if you need encouragement. And of course you are welcome to borrow a copy of the Book of Common Prayer from church if you don’t have one at home.
But whatever you decide to do, keep praying.
Morning prayer is a quiet and reflective service of readings and prayer.
'A wonderful way to start my day'
'30 minutes of prayerful serenity helps to get everything in perspective'
All welcome - no experience necessary!
