All welcome to join Sutton Coldfield Quakers for our Meetings for Worship, Support and Healing, taking place on the first Thursday of every month.
At a Meeting for Worship, Support and Healing, a small group of Friends & Attenders come together for a silent half-hour of remembering, praying for, and ‘holding in the Light’ those people who are personally known to each participant, and who are ill, possibly disabled too, and who may be recently deceased or bereaved.
The names of those who are ill are listed beforehand, and there is usually a little ‘background’ provided by the informant. At the end of the silent prayer meeting, all the names are read out by the convenor.
The prayer group participants also express their more general concerns about pain & suffering in the wider world; these are similarly listed, and later read out.
‘Healing’ as such is simply seen as a component of prayer. The prayer group has occasionally received positive feedback from those who have been the subject of prayer, to the extent that they feel ‘supported’ in their plight.
