Edited by Karen Campbell and the Revd Ian Fosten, the 2021 URC Prayer Handbook is titled Conversations, and comes in two sections. The first follows the pattern of linking a prayer to one or more of the set lectionary readings for particular days throughout the year. The second section invites contributions which arose out of the writers’ personal experiences of conversing with God – the everyday and extraordinary situations in which we are moved to say “Sorry!”, “Help!” or “Thank You!”, along with the issues which give rise to deep reflection, or to respond to God’s voice as heard through the scriptures and the world.

The Handbook includes two prayers by Katrina Clifford, an elder at Trinity.

Available to buy from £4.99 +p+p from URC online store.  Also available in large print edition £9.99.

Younger workers, those from BAME communities and those with caring responsibilities have been disproportionately affected by job losses due to the pandemic, and many therefore have been forced to borrow to make ends meet.
