Prayer Hour at St. Paul's Cathedral

Each month we have the privilege of meeting in the Middlesex Chapel in St Paul's Cathedral for our Prayer Hour between 11 am to 12 noon.

This is led by clergy, lay readers or members throughout the Diocese which gives its unique diversity each month.
We currently cannot hold our Prayer Hour in the Middlesex Chapel due to building works.
We have been relocated to the OBE Chapel in the Crypt with effect from 2022.

It has been decided by our Trustees for 2022 to offer members the choice to attend the Monthly Prayer Hours at the Cathedral or via Zoom. Therefore the prayer sessions will be set on alternate months in the Catheral or Zoom.

Prayer Hour - December 2019



An amazing Session! Fr Gary was simply empowering as he explained to us why, as Christians, our first loyalty is to Christ and the Gospel.  That we should always walk in the in the Light of Christ. That "Shopping" or "the children" were not the real reason for Christmas.   That Christmas is "God stepping into the world to bring a new way of Life, a new life of Peace.

We also observed the 8th day of the 16 Days of Gender Based Violence Against Women and Girls and said the relevant prayers for the 8th day.

He guided everyone to Read the 24 Chapters of St Luke's Gospel, a Chapter per day, to understand the meaning of Advent and discover why the Advent Calendar has 24 doors!

It was a wonderful way to end the 2019 Prayer Hour Session on a Spiritual high note. The message was just Amazing! We all appreciated it.

With every blessing, Gogo-Rose

The amazing Speaker at the October 8th  Prayer Hour Session at the Middlesex Chapel in St Paul's cathedral was Fr Mark Fletcher. So inspiring and uplifting was the message: That in times of turmoil as in these times we should continue to have faith and trust God who will make justice happen in accordance with Psalm 46.  God's reassuring promise of "Be still and know that I am God..." will lift our fears and uncertainties.

rayer Hour - June 2019

June Prayer Hour session held on Thursday 6th June 2019. 

We were richly blessed by the powerful Homily of Fr Stephen Taylor, who makes following Christ an easy process every Christian should embrace at all times and in all circumstances.  To God be the Glory.



Prayer Hour - February 2019

We had a classic Prayer Hour workshop in the February session. 
Pat Beazley leading the February Prayer Hour at the Middlesex Chapel in St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday 13th against the backdrop of the renowned portrait of Jesus as Light of the World by William Holman Hunt hanging at the Altar of the Middlesex Chapel.

Pat led the group to explore the hidden meanings in the Portrait by careful examination of the 'lights' shown in the picture: the Lantern as the 'Light of Conscience' and the light around the head of Christ as the 'Light of Salvation'. 

Pat also spoke on how to identify the four areas of modern day slavery.
Look out for more on these topics in the next In Touch Magazine.
