Church on the Corner

Church on the Corner is an Anglican church in an old pub in Islington, London

Prayer is one of the great privileges of the Christian life. It is walking with God in the cool of the day, it is an echo of eden, a glimpse of eternity.
It  can be understood by a child but takes a lifetime to learn fully. One of the best ways to join in the life of church is to pray with us, and with the church across the world.

Resources
There are many good patterns of prayer, and we encourage people to explore different forms in order to find one which works for them. But of course something life prayer also requires discipline and dedication. It will sometimes be hard work, and tempting to give up. Good structures can help us through hard times.

Simple Morning Prayer

This is a very simple format of Morning prayer, idea for praying on the move.
