Prayer Tree

Have you seen our Prayer Tree in the Foyer of the Church?

The prayer tree is a place that anyone can come to, and write a prayer.

Prayers are hung on the tree, as a sign of the prayer being offered to God.

Choose either a butterfly or a dove, or both!butterfly prayer tree

A butterfly is a sign of new life:

  • Christians believe that Jesus gives everyone hope of a new life and a new start
  • Write or draw your hopes, dreams or ideas about new beginnings
  • Hang the butterfly on the tree

A dove represents the power of the Holy Spirit at work on our lives:

  • Write or draw on your dove gifts the things you want to say thank you for
  • Thing’s you’re good at or things you appreciate in other people
  • Or share a memory
  • Hang the dove on the tree

Look at the windows in the Church – can you spot which one has a dove?

The fruit of the Spirit include:

  • Love
  • Peace
  • Joy
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Generosity
