Introduction and Outline               Prayer Material for the Day                Prayer and Worship through Holy Week


There are several ways to be involved:

1. Prayer Slots. The day will be divided into one hourly ‘slots’ with the hope that there will be at least two people praying each hour. You can ‘sign up’ for an hour (or several) by booking a slot online (, by phoning Joyce (see Dorothy's email), or by emailing us.

2. Zoom Prayer Sessions. 30-minute ‘prayer gatherings’ on Zoom throughout the day (see document for times). These are an opportunity to pray together and share our reflections on the day. Zoom details in Dorothy's email.

3. Prayer Top Ups. 5 minutes, online, pre-recorded sessions designed to encourage us and help us to pray. These will be available via the Stanhope Methodist YouTube channel at the times given in the programme.

4. Creative Retreat Day. Join friends from the Durham & Deerness Valley Methodist Circuit for a day long retreat. You need to book in advance. Contact Sue Smith for details and to book.
