Contemplative Prayer 2019

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.  

 

 

Tuesday, 8th January, at 11 am in St Martin's Church and Thursday, 24th January, at 29, Hereford Close.  The saying this month is from Mark 13.2,8, and 13: 'All will be thrown down ... the birth-pangs of the new age begin ... who endures to the end will be saved.'  For the New Year we are all conscious of turmoilk in the world and in our own country.  We turn to God and seek his wilol and his encouragement.

 

Tuesday, 12th February at 11 am ion St Martin's Church and Thursday, 28th February at 29, Hereford Close.  We will be drawing on Psalm 50.12 and John 15.16 for this month - 'All is mine ... I have chosen you'.  As Jesus chose his disciples, he chooses us to form his 'body' on this earth.  We have the gifts to further his kindom and to glorify him.
