Most services or prayers are for use at any time of the year – eg Night Prayer; a prayer for those who have died – but at times we include some that are relevant to a particular season.

Prayers when someone has died

The death of someone near to us is always a difficult time: you might find the use of some of these prayers helpful. https://www.bodicotechurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Prayers-for-those-who-have-died-and-those-who-mourn.pdf

Prayers for use during the Coronavirus pandemic

We are currently living in very strange times: many are suffering from the physical symptoms of the virus, many are anxious or afraid, many are lonely. We are concerned for ourselves and for others.

Night Prayer (also called Compline)

This is a service of quietness and reflection at the end of the day. https://www.bodicotechurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Compline.pdf

Spiritual Communion

When being present at a celebration of the Eucharist is absolutely impossible, this act of prayer and meditation can provide the means by which you can associate yourself with the Eucharistic Action and open yourself to God’s grace and blessing.  https://www.bodicotechurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Spiritual-Communion.pdf
