Under normal circumstances, we regularly pray for people at our services, and St Stephen’s is often open during the week for anyone to drop in to pray, or to be prayed for. However, as all our buildings are currently closed, and our services have moved online, we have instead set up this virtual prayer wall.

If you would like to pray, or like us to pray for you or someone you know, please submit your prayer request below.

(please note, when you press submit they won’t appear on the wall immediately, as they will first go to one of our prayer team).
