We are the Diocese of Leeds at the start of the day.....In this season of Lent, it seemed appropriate to remember the daily office, to remember that when we pray, there are millions of Christian people all around the world also praying; daily in churches, in their own homes, in their cars, at work and those prayers are joined to the prayers of the saints and angels in heaven. You might not hear them. You might feel very alone in your prayer; but you are not alone. There is no “my” prayer. It is, as the beginning of the Lord’s Prayer states, “our”.
We have around 1,000 bellringers across the diocese who regularly call worshippers to church every Sunday and who usually practise once or twice a week.
If you want to know more or are interested in bellringing, contact your local church to find your nearest group. Volunteers are always welcome.
