Collect - Prayer for today


Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of righteousness: grant to all those who are admitted  into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Pastoral Care at St Martin's

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.
