  • A Prayer Group meets for about 45 mins most Mondays at 6.45pm to pray together for the community (Fairford as a town and the Church Community) and also praying for the requests that have been placed in the prayer box in the Lady Chapel and Park Close Stores. Anyone is welcome to join in with this.

Prayer For The Month (May)

Angel Window 15 Dear Lord, thank you for the opportunity to serve you, whether we feed the hungry, share your word with others or just befriend a lonely soul, help us to remember whatever we do we do it for you. Show us the right path Lord, that our lives may reflect your glory. We ask in Jesus name, AMEN

If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.
Galatians 5:25

The peace of the eternal Father be about you, the peace of the risen Lord be within you, the peace of the Holy Spirit be upon you.
