Diocesan Fellowship of Pray-ers

The vision of having a Diocesan Fellowship of Pray-ers was initiated at the beginning of the Decade of Evangelism in the early 1990s. It was felt that church congregations frequently pray for their own local needs and most pray for the needs of the world but there seemed to be a gap between the parish church and the wider world.  It seemed that we were so concerned with our own needs that we didn’t pay attention or support the needs of our neighbouring churches, ie others in the Deanery.

The Fellowship of Pray-ers is committed to regularly praying for the parishes in their own deaneries, as well as the wider Diocese, and they meet several times a year as a deanery of praying people.  Most deaneries have a co-ordinator who keeps the deanery churches informed of needs and thanksgiving, and most regularly issue a printed leaflet of prayer topics for the parishes they represent, some monthly and others quarterly.

Archdeaconry Co-ordinators
The Diocese has a co-ordinator for each Archdeaconry. As well as visiting and encouraging the deaneries in their Archdeaconry, each archdeaconry co-ordinator collects and collates prayer topics each month and submits them to the diocesan website for Praying the Way, so that all can share in this ministry.

Anyone who would like to become more involved with praying for their deanery and the Diocese, please get in touch with one of the archdeaconry co-ordinators, who will be delighted to put you in touch with the appropriate person.
