Prayer at St. Petroc's Church
Prayer is the invitation to talk with God, and it's open to all.
We believe that as we spend time with him, God meets with us. As we offer him our hopes, fears, and longings, he can change our lives. Prayer is an important part of our every day lives, as well as our worshipping on a Sunday, and there are various ways you can join with the prayers of the church:
Ask someone - you are welcome to get in touch with any of the team and ask them to pray with you and for you. They can put you in touch with our pastoral ministers for any ongoing prayer needs.
Sit in peace - St. Petroc's is open daily from about 10am to 4pm. You are welcome to come and enjoy the stillness and quietness of the church, pray to God, and meet with him there.
Pray online - you can read prayers or listen to acts of prayer on the Church of England website.

A quiet place for prayer
One of the side chapels at St. Petroc’s Church is a place for quiet refection and prayer.
Many people like to light a candle as part of their prayer.
A Pilgrim Prayer Trail gives prayers to say at several places around the church.
Requests for prayer can be written and added to the prayer tree for others to pray on the writer’s behalf.
A set of prayer cards are available for anyone to use and take away. The cards are also online (see link above).
