FIVE PARISHESWe encourage prayer in the Fellside Team. In addition to your own private prayers, we have four options to help with prayer in the Team:

Daily Prayer: There is prayer at 7.45am in one of the churches of the Fellside Team each weekday. You are welcome to join us. The pattern is as follows:

Monday - St Eadmer, Bleasdale

Tuesday - St Lawrence, Barton

Wednesday - St Hilda, Bilsborrow

Thursday - St Mary, Goosnargh

Friday - St James, Whitechapel

Prayer Cards: These are in racks at the back of each church containing Prayer Cards. When you go visiting as many of us do, please take a card with you, and give it to the person you are visiting. Each card contains a Bible Verse and a Prayer, and is a reminder of your visit as a member of the Church.

Prayer Corners: In each Church in the Fellside Team, visible from the entrance is a place where you can, if you wish, write a prayer request. These are open for people to see and to include them in their own prayers. In some of the churches these cards are brought to the altar in the Eucharist as a symbol of our prayer for your concern.
