Here are some resources to help those new to prayer or want to deepen their prayer life.
We are all invited into relationship with God and for all of us this relationship is built on prayer. The invitation comes from God, who loves us and is always seeking us, always waiting for us. God is always ready, we only need to begin.
Prayer is about spending time with your God; talking and listening.

St James Catholic church
St James Church is built within the ruins of the great Benedictine Abbey. Today we continue the practice of the monks to celebrate the Sacred Liturgy in Word and Sacrament. The church was built between 1837 and 1840, the architect was A W Pugin. On 14th December 2012 the community celebrated a Mass of Thanks giving on the 175th Anniversary of the Laying of the Foundation Stone and completion of the recent restoration work in the church.
