Silent Prayer more

A small group of people meet at 14.00, usually on the 4th Monday of each month, in the Sanctuary at Oakwood Church to explore praying silently together. Here are some comments from those taking part:

“It’s good not to use words all the time.”

“I got distracted but I was still able to come back to the silence.”

“Being still is hard work but it brings me to the still small voice of calm.”

“It’s good to do this together.”

Praying for the Community

At Oakwood Church, we regularly pray for the local community.  In addition, from October 2018 to June 2020, we are distributing cards to homes, businesses and community organisations street by street.  The card bears a greeting from the church and an invitation to get in touch with prayer requests. Look out in church for the following: a map with street names, prayer calendars to take away, a sign-up sheet to join in distribution of cards and, of course, cards to distribute. Please have a look at the map, join in praying for our neighbours and help to get the cards to as many people as possible

“O God you are the divine community of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we thank you for

our own community of

Roundhay / Oakwood

Keep it safe from all danger and evil, and help us to live in love and support for one another

Keep us alert to each other's needs, and equip us to offer our best in building a community that reflects the Community of Heaven.  Amen”
