SATURDAYS IN SEPTEMBER - 6pm to 7pm - WALK THROUGH PRAYER VIGIL at Whalley Methodist Church


 Everyone is welcome to come along between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturdays in September on a ‘drop-in’ basis.


The Sanctuary will be open for people to light a candle, write a prayer or a reflection or ask to be prayed with. Quiet music will be playing, so you can sit for a while and just be still. As this is essentially a ‘walk-through’ vigil, individual time spent in the Sanctuary is limited to 15 minutes.


Please rest assured that every care has been taken to minimise the risk of viral person-to-person transmission or contracting the virus from a surface. For this reason, individual tapers for lighting the candles will be used and visitors are asked to bring their own pen if they wish to write a prayer.


All visitors to the vigil will be asked to wear a mask (unless aged 11 or under) and  will need to supply contact details. Social distancing of 2 metres will be in force through the Sanctuary. Please read this document about safety precautions in place for your visit and the additional guidance information.


Call-in to this vigil on Saturdays, anytime between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. This is a special moment in time that many of us have been waiting for - when the Sanctuary is open once again after being closed for 6 months. We will still not be holding worship services for a few more weeks yet,  but this vigil is a very significant beginning.
