Liverpool - Haydock - St James the Great

The Guild of St. Raphael has a local branch based at the parish church of St James the Great, Haydock. The church address is St James the Great, Church Road, Haydock, Lancashire, WA11 0NJ.

'Healing Through Prayer' - thatís the wording on our banner, of which the Branch of the Guild at St James the Great, Haydock, is very proud. We have a membership of fifty or so dedicated members, so our prayer list reflects our connections. We meet each month on the last Tuesday of the month for a Healing Eucharist with the laying on of hands. After the service we go to the Parish Room where everyone is given a prayer card with four names on it, with the promise that we will pray for those named, every day for the next month. We also deliver personally Christmas and Easter cards with a little hand written message. The responses from this simple gesture are very humbling. The long term sick know that a group from St James' have not forgotten them, and members of their families tell us how much these cards mean to them.

We are always glad to welcome anyone who would like to join us in these acts of worship. Edna Clough, the Branch secretary, may be contacted by phone on 01 942 720 237
