St John's has Installed a Prayer Request Box for the Public

A  “prayer request box” has been installed for people to can ask for prayers when the church is no open.

The letter box is in place at St John’s church in the town with pen and paper attached for members of the public to ask for things to be prayed for during the services at the church.

“People have been praying in St John’s for nearly 900 years. These prayer request boxes have proved popular in other churches and we thought it would be good to make such a facility available to people in Devizes. It is a privilege to be able to bring people’s needs before God."
