Prayer Opportunities

There are many opportunities to join with others in prayer here at High Street Church.

Daily … We have a prayer corner within the worship area of our church.  This is available to anyone who needs to come and just sit and be quiet or pray.  There is a prayer box where prayers can be written and left.  These are always collected and prayed for by our ‘Thursday 45 minute group’.

Wednesdays .... 09.30-10.45 Space 2B - a quiet, reflective prayer group meeting on a Wednesday morning from 9.30 - 10.30am in someone's home.  We explore different ways of praying, sometimes with scripture or maybe a poem or a picture.  We are always quiet together for about 30 minutes and people can share if they wish.  For more information, please contact Brenda Woods on 01993 700715 or

Thursdays … 9.30 am – 10.15 am. Drop in for a time of quiet reflection and intercessory prayer.  We always include prayers that have been left in our ‘prayer box’ by visitors to our prayer corner throughout the week, or left on our prayer board in the foyer.  Anyone is welcome to come and join with us and stay for a cup of tea and a chat afterwards.

4th Saturdays … 8.00 am – 9.30 am.  Churches Together Prayer Breakfast focussing on the life and witness of Witney churches.  An opportunity to meet together, pray together and eat together.  All welcome.

We also have a ‘prayer diary’ leaflet which is distributed to all members and a ‘prayer chain’ where request are received for members and their families either through e-mail or telephone.  (More details to follow and contacts etc in due course).

Here is an extract from our recent prayer diary, written by one of  our ministers on prayer…

‘Just what is prayer?  Prayer is our direct line with heaven.  Prayer is a communication process that allows us to talk with God!  He wants us to communicate with Him, like a person to person phone call.  Mobile phones and other devices have become a necessity to some people in today’s society.  We have bluetooth devices, blackberries, and talking computers!  These are devices that allow two or more people to interact, discuss and respond to one another.  Sometimes prayer seems complicated, but it is simply talking with God.  Think of it like this … praying is like talking to your best friend!  It’s easy to talk to someone when you know they love you unconditionally!  Enjoy the conversation.'



Ephesians 6:18 (The Message)

In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
