There is the opportunity to join members of the North Bury and Lark Valley Churches in prayer at the following times: 


  • Morning Prayer is said at 8:30am on Mondays in the villages (see here for exact details), Tuesdays at St George's, Wednesdays and Fridays at St John's, Thursday at All Saints. 

  • Evening Prayer is said at St George's on Wednesdays, St John's on Fridays at 5.30pm. 

  • Meditation and silent prayer takes place at St. John's on Tuesdays at 6.30pm.


Prayers for healing and wholeness are available at All Saints' every Sunday at the end of the main service, at St George's on the first Sunday of the month, and at one of the Fornham's churches during the 10am Eucharist on the first Tuesday of the month. 

Laying on of hands and anointing for healing is available on the third Sunday of the month after the Eucharist at St John's.  This is an opportunity for specific prayer for yourself or others.

Our monthly Praying Together leaflet helps us to pray for the wider life of our parishes, as well as members of our church family.

Most of our churches are open everyday, providing a quiet place for prayer and reflection.  They all have prayer sheets for you to request the church to add your concerns and thanksgivings to their Sunday prayers of intercession.

All Saints and St. John's have candle stands which are frequently used.  St John's has a prayer board and All Saints has a prayer tree for visitors to add their prayers to.
