Prayer and Small Groups


We come to the foot of the crossWe believe in the power and importance of prayer and meet regularly to pray together at different churches across the group.

We meet for 30 minutes on the following days every week:

  • Monday 7pm in St Andrew's Church, Temple Grafton
  • Tuesday 7pm in St Laurence's Church - Bidford
  • Thursday 9am in the Church Room at St Matthew's
  • Friday 6.30pm at a home in Salford Priors
You are very welcome to any of these meetings or to pray in church at any time. St Matthew's church is open every day from approx 8am until 4/5pm. There is a "Prayer Corner" at the front of the south aisle for you to sit or Hands open to receive from the Holy Spiritkneel quietly and with paper and pens to write any prayers or prayer requests and place them on the board for inclusion at our regular prayer times.


If you would like someone to pray with you, then after every 10.30am service there will  be members of our Prayer Ministry Team in the choir stalls sitting quietly for you to join them. Please feel free to come forward whenever you feel in need of this ministry. This is also available at Village Praise in the Memorial Hall on the first Sunday of the month.

We usually set aside time in our Home Groups for regular prayer and support.


Studying the BibleWe have a number of small groups (Homegroups) meeting fortnightly in homes around the parishes on different days of the week, where folk can build trust and friendships, pray and support each other and study the Bible together.

There is also a daytime Bible Study Group which meets on Monday mornings in someone's home.

For more information or to join a group, please speak to the Vicar or one of the Church Leaders or contact the Church Office.
