God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,
so by his continual presence in us he may raise us
to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

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.
News and Notices for the Weekly News Sheet are to be forwarded to the church office by the close of business on Wednesday for inclusion the next Sunday, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by telephone to 01306 884229.
