Welcome to

St. Andrews Church Greensted

Prayer by Rev. Philip Spence

Lord, as I sit in this ancient church I can feel that it is a special place.

I know you are no more in here than you are outside, or in my home or place of work, but somehow I’m made aware of you here.

Help me to use these precious moments to unlock myself and let you in, so that when I go home I shall discover that it too is a place where you are. Amen.
