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.  

 

In April we will be celebrating the Resurrection  The 'saying' chosen will be from Matthew 26.32: 'I will go before you ...'   Our trust is in the resurrection and he will lead us forward with our failures turned into new beginnings.

 

Although we will not be meeting together in Church, please let Adrian know if you would like to receive the notes for your own contemplative time at home
