St John & St Mark Church, Bury

On Reflection

Prayer and Bible Study are integral parts of our Christian lives. These pages give you details about the groups that meet during the year as well as links to on-line resources.

We have a Christian Meditation group meeting at 7.30pm each Tuesday evening in the Lady Chapel. Contact David McKenna at wccm.bolton@gmail.com for further details.

On the first Monday of each month we have a Listening Prayer group which meets at 150 Walmersley Road. Then at Lent, Advent and other points of the year we have a number of Bible Study groups which normally meet for sessions of 4 or 5 weeks to look at a particular course of study. These quite often attract people from a number of churches.

We have also set up a Prayer Chain for cascading urgent prayer requests by phone. If you would like to be part of this please contact Gill Barnett, either directly on 0161 971 6318, or via the Contact Form.

In addition, once a year in May we have a retreat to St Joseph's Prayer Centre in Formby. This is a lovely opportunity to step aside from our normal routine and spend some time in reflection in beautiful surroundings. We also have ad hoc days away to Formby for those wanting a quick top-up!
