‘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.
