RESOURCES for Christian living
We hope you will find something to help you in this section, perhaps with
reading the Bible,
worship in Church
or some other part of your Christian life. Follow the links on the left or
in the panel below, where you will find more information.

- Prayer - What?, Why? and How?
Hopefully everyone will find this page of some help in their prayers, but it is particularly for you if
you have never prayed by yourself before, or hardly ever - or if you find prayer difficult (that's all of us at least sometimes!).
- Prayers for you to use. A small selection of the many prayers that have been written or composed by others.
You may like to use them.
- Prayer - a brief reflection.
A few words that may stimulate some thought about prayer - and encourage you to pray!
Formed by the Spirit. A newsletter with details of events and courses about prayer and spirituality and some
resources for prayer. It is produced 3-4 times a year by the Diocesan Spiritual Formation Group. (Some previous issues
are available - the events are over but you may find the resources and some of the other information in them
useful. You can download issues
You may need to install
Adobe Reader to read or download the newsletter.
- Prayer Tools. You can read or download copies of the "Prayer Tools" which are on laminated sheets in a folder
in the Church foyer. (Some of them came from previous editions of "Formed by the Spirit" - see above.)
Generally, each page is a separate "tool" - just read or print the page(s) you want.
You need a space to sit, stand, kneel or possibly walk, maybe a Bible and sometimes an item such as a stone,
a candle or a cross. Sometimes you need something more, like a piece of art.
Apart from the "intro" set there is no common theme in the sets - they were just produced together.
You may need to install
Adobe Reader to read or download them.
- What is the Bible?
An introduction - some brief notes to help you. And a list of all the books of the Bible, with page
numbers and a note about what they are.
- A Quick Read.
