O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we lose not our hold on things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father,
for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Morning Prayer is said at 9:00am in the Lady Chapel every weekday apart from Friday when Daily Prayer will be said at 12 noon. On Wednesday, there is a service of Holy Communion in the Church at 11am.

Life sometimes delivers severe blows and problems that are just too much to cope with on your own. The Church and Christian Centre, are here to support you and the community of Dorking both pastorally and spiritually. If you need somebody to talk to in complete confidence, for whatever reason, we are here to help. The Church Pastoral team has three trained and authorised Pastoral Assistants and Methodist Pastoral Visitors, all of whom are experienced and can offer understanding and prayerful support. The Christian Centre offers a drop-in Listening Service on Monday mornings in the Centre Café (10:30 – 12:00). The Chaplain is usually available on Monday mornings plus variable other weekday mornings, but you may prefer to make an appointment to see her via The Centre Managers. One of our Monday morning Listeners is also a trained Counsellor (UPCA registered) and she can off private appointments on request for counselling.
