Christian Prayer Group

8:00 pm, The Crypt Chapel

The Christian Prayer Group has been set up by a group of Wellington parents, from a variety of church backgrounds, who believe prayers have a positive impact on school life. It gives parents the opportunity to get together and pray for the school, its governors and staff, the pupils and their families. The group welcomes all parents and staff, and anyone else within the Wellington Community with an interest in praying blessings on the school community.  

This group meets twice per term to pray, the meetings are very informal and take place on Sunday evenings, in the Crypt Chapel (down the steps beside the Chapel).  

For more information or prayer requests please contact the Prayer group coordinators:
Gilly (gilly@thehafners.com) and Suzanne (suzanne@bishton.net), both Wellington parents.
