Contemplative Prayer 2020

Meets: 2nd Tuesday of each month at 11 am in St Martin's and on the 4th Thursday at 8 pm at 29, Hereford Cl;ose, Epsom

 

The aim of the Group is to teach and to practise 'listening prayer'. The method used is that set out by the Fellowship of Contemplative Prayer. The meetings are almost always in the Church itself. Anyone who would like an hour or so of led meditation or contemplation and silence based on one of the sayings of God from the Old Testament or one of Jesus in the New Testament is very welcome.  

 

 

 

The Group will meet in January on the usual days and times - 2nd Tuesday at 11 am and 4th Thursday at 8 pm. So the 'saying' for January is 'Behold, I am making all things new' from Revelation 21.5.  In this part of Revelation, sentences tumble out one after another and here is the one that is ideal for the New Year as one of God's promises concerning our salvation.  Tuesday, 14th January at 11 am  in Church and Thursday, 23rd January at 29, Hereford Close.  All are very welcome.
