Prayers for peace
A collection of prayers handed down from the early Church
the Celtic year
Prayer resources following the ancient Celtic year.
A small collection of contemporary prayers
Prayer is at the heart of Christian worship, and has been since humankind first encountered their Creator in a certain garden!
The form of prayer and liturgy used in the major denominations can often be traced back to the early centuries of the Church.
On this site you will find lots of worship resources, mainly centred around our prayer life. There are hundreds of prayers, both ancient/ traditional and those which I have written, often influenced by the Celtic Church. There are also complete liturgies and Bible studies available to download.
It's mainly a free resource, but that doesn't stop you buying an ebook!

'Ripples of Prayer' is all about engaging with the world in prayer, and is a collection of 200 new prayers for personal use, and an aid for those who lead worship in church.
Imagine throwing a pebble in a pond, and watching the ripples spread out over the surface of the water. So it can be with our prayers, which start with our own walk with God and spread out to encompass our fellow travellers throughout the world.
Available to download (PDF, epub and Kindle versions)

Lent & Easter Prayer and Study Resources
No sooner is Christmas over than we're thinking about Lent with Easter being so early in 2016.
"People of the Light" has "Light" as its theme, and journeying through the Bible from Genesis and onward to the New Testament we look at verious aspects of light, as it refers to God, Jesus, the Prophets, Scripture and of course the believers who were called People of the Light by Jesus. As always, the study is formatted for ease of copying for a group, and as permission is given for copying, you only need one copy!
