Prayer and Spirituality

The Pilgrimage of Prayer is usually held at 11 am on the first Tuesday of each month in the Lady Chapel of Guildford Cathedral, led by each deanery in rotation.

This is an open service – all are welcome.

At this service names of members who have died may be read out from the Book of Remembrance. If you wish a name to be entered in the Book of Remembrance, please send the details (name, dates of birth and death, branch and a line or two about the person if you wish) in writing (by post or email) to the Administrator, to arrive at least two weeks before the particular service at which you wish the name to be read out

Wave of Prayer Every member of the worldwide Mothers' Union is remembered in prayer throughout the year when members are together for Midday Prayers.

Diocesan retreats are held in the spring and in the autumn, usually at Godalming or Woking and are organised by Mary Trevill who can be contacted via the Mothers' Union office.

Quiet Days/Prayer Sharing Days are organised at either diocesan or deanery level for young families, branches, those living alone and for other groups.

Resources for young families are provided as requested.
