Peace in a Fractured World
Our newspapers are full of bad news stories, and ineviably it's people who suffer.
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!
