Prayer

‘Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances’

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

At Westbury Baptist Church prayer takes place in a variety of settings from Sunday services, to prayer groups and in meetings.

There are many opportunities for praying in groups within the community. A regular Prayer Group met monthly on a Monday evening, inteneded as a time for quiet reflection & which is valued by those who come. Sadly this has stopped for the time being as new lockdown restrictions are in place (Jan 2021). Our home groups offer opportunities to pray with others & several small groups gather on a regular basis to pray together, at the moment onlione via Zoom.

The Worship and Prayer Team oversees all aspects of our prayer life. The function of the team is to facilitate and implement ideas as well as to research and explore new possibilities.

Some Resources for Prayer which we find helpful are on our Links page.

Monday Prayer


‘A Breathing Space’

On Monday evenings we would like to offer a quiet half hour, a time to pause and draw close to God, a time to put aside the cares of the day and to enjoy being in God’s presence. We may have a time of quiet, reflection on a psalm and an opportunity for praying aloud. We invite you to join us in this time, where we can draw breath and be refreshed.

For now, we will meet in the Lounge at 7.30pm on alternate Monday evenings. Dates for the next couple of months are 25th October; 22nd November and 13th December.


On a practical note, we ask you to wear a face mask when you are moving around the building and to maintain social distancing where possible.

Prayer ministry

Prayer ministry is back. Now that restrictions are lifting slowly, we would like to offer regular prayer ministry on Sunday mornings again. Each Sunday two people will be available to pray with anyone who would like to come.

So, if you have any personal concern or would like prayer for a particular situation or just want to thank God for something, please come and we can pray together.

The prayer corner has moved slightly so is now in front of the pulpit rather than beside it. You will find us quite easily.


Please get in touch with Eveline Johnstone on 0117 962 5132 or at eveline.johnstone@blueyonder.co.uk if you would like to join & she will send you the zoom link.
