Prayers for the Diocese

This is an aid to intercessory prayer and is compiled by the Reverend Ray Hartley (St John the Evangelist, Epping).

The churches, chapels and agencies of the Diocese are listed on the date of their feast of title, so that all may join in spirit with each congregation as they keep their festival. It may be printed as a booklet.
