Resources

This page offers you resources for your prayer and fasting. Monthly prayer points are on the left, with an archive beneath this month’s points. A toolkit of materials produced for Pray and Fast for the Climate (logos, posters, a reflective prayer, a service outline) is in the centre. Prayer materials sent in by people around the world are on the right. Send us yours via [email protected]

If you’d like to find a particular type of resource (eg prayers, sermon notes) click here.
