Prayer Walk  Churches Together in St Albans: Prayer Walk 2017.
Over twenty people from across St Albans churches assembled at SS Alban and Stephen for the annual Autumn Prayer Walk on Heritage Weekend Sunday, September 10th.

Led by Father Tom, with prayers at our church followed by blessings at  Trinity URC, we embarked on the short walk up Victoria Street to Marlborough Road Methodist Church. Welcomed into the handsomely refurbished church, we listened to a short history of the church followed by prayers for the City and our group.

Our next stop was the Salvation Army Hall which was a welcome addition to this year’s itinerary. Keeping to schedule and declining the very tempting offer of tea and biscuits, we pressed on. Pausing for prayers for the judiciary and council leaders outside the Law Courts, we journeyed on

At St Peter's Church, we were warmly greeted as usual and, after prayers from Canon Mark, we had time to look at the beautiful windows and other interesting features of this fine church.

Another warm welcome awaited us at Dagnall Street Baptist Church from the recently arrived Minister, Revd Johnny.  St Alban's Heritage Weekend meant that we could visit the beautiful mosaic Baptistry and we prayed there for its community and the people of St Albans. 

Stopping briefly at Spicer St Church  and Centre 33 to read from the Psalms,  we made our way down Fishpool Street to St Michael’s Village just as light rain began to fall.

Our arrival at St Michael's Church was met with the usual generous welcome from Revd Kenneth and some parishioners.  This beautiful late 10th / early 11th century church is one of the gems of St Albans and we were able to view a hidden floor brass of a 13th century knight.  Revd Kenneth closed our visit with prayers for the congregation and for the people of St Albans and we retired for tea and homemade cakes provided by the parish hospitality team at the Parish Centre. 

Slightly fewer in numbers, as the rain persisted, we commenced our final leg to the Abbey through Verulamium Park. Clustering around the Shrine of St Alban for our closing prayers led by the Sub Dean, Canon Richard. The camaraderie of the walkers and those who greeted us, drawn from eight church congregations across our city, reflected our unity in Christ and, as always, proved a truly uplifting experience.
