Prayer Link

"Whatever you ask for in prayer , believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."   MARK 11:24

Often the times when we need prayer the most, are the times when it is hardest to pray.  At these times you might like to have others help you by praying for you and with you.  We have a Prayer Link in our Church here at Parkgate and Neston U.R.C. and we will gladly add your name or request for prayer to our list.We only need a Christian name and requests are confidential, sometimes people don’t want prayers said during the service .Your privacy will be respected at all times.


To make contact for prayer requests, your elder can pass on requests or give you a number to call, or you can use the website link www.parkgateandnestonurc.org.uk on our Contact Us page. Non church members are welcome to use the prayer link, it is our joy to be there for anyone who calls on the Lord for help
