Stepping up: Leading the intercessions

Date: 24th May 2021

Time: 19:30 - 21:00

Stepping up: three workshops

Around the diocese people are stepping up to enable worship to continue in their churches. Some of those are exploring particular ministries, lay and ordained, but many more are prepared to volunteer and have a go at some of the basic activities that enable worship to happen.

If you’re thinking of helping out in your church, if you’ve already put your name forward, if you’ve had your arm twisted, or even been doing one or more of these for a while, then these workshops could be for you.

2. Stepping up: Leading the intercessions

When and Where: Monday 24 May, 7.30pm on Zoom

Book your place:

Praying is an important part of the Christian life. The Common Worship confirmation service encourages those who have just been confirmed to take part in leading the prayers that immediately follow the confirmation. Leading other people in prayer is seen as one of the key privileges of the newly confirmed disciple.

But how do we go from reading prayers that others have written, to putting things in our own words. What are the right things to pray for, and what are the better ways to phrase our requests and thanksgivings? This workshop builds on the experience that we all have as people who have been helped or hindered to pray by the ways others lead prayer. It will draw out some of the principles of leading clear intercessions, and offer a path by which people can grow in their experience.
