When we pray we are talking to God. Christians have the mind-blowing privilege of being able to approach God freely and confidently in prayer. We talk to him as our father and can ask for his presence and help in all areas of our lives and world. We believe that praying is one of the most exciting and impactful things that we can do and we try and make space for prayer in everything that we do as a church.
Prayer plays an important role in all our services and Discipleship Groups. We set aside time for intercessory prayer (asking God to help us, or others, in particular ways or situations), either spoken from the front or led in a more interactive way. We usually have time for ‘prayer ministry’, in which those who want have a chance to ask members of our team to pray with them about specific things, asking the Holy Spirit to help them.
‘ And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.’ Ephesians 6:18
The Prayer Room
We believe prayer should be front and centre in our lives and all that we do here at Holy Sepulchre. To help people pray, we have set aside a prayer room to equip and resource people in prayer and worship. While the space is sometimes needed for church groups and activities, we try to make it more generally available as much as possible.
Our Prayer Room is a space set aside for Christian prayer and worship most days from 6am-11pm, and is open for individuals or groups of friends who want to spend time with God.
At times the prayer room can get very busy, so we ask people to limit the length of time they book to 2 hours, and only to book up to once a week. That also means that we are not able to offer regular bookings to external groups at this point.
To see when the room is available, and to book a slot, please use the booking link below.
When you have booked a slot you will receive a confirmation email, and a reminder 24 hours before your allocated time, or 1 hour before if you book on the day. The confirmation email will give you all the information you need for accessing and using the room.
Sadly for safeguarding reasons the prayer room cannot be used by under-18’s, unless accompanied by their parents or guardians, or as part of an organised Holy Sepulchre London youth or children’s activity.
We have multiple prayer stations to inspire and encourage you to pray. For example-
Holy Sepulchre’s Prayer Wall- a chalkboard you can write prayer requests and prayers of thanksgiving
Quiet and Reflective Corner
Children’s Wall- we are praying for the children and youth in our church
City of London & Workplace Illustration- using the wall illustration as inspiration to pray for our city
We would love to encourage you to get involved. Please book a slot for you to pray, or bring a group of friends to pray with.
