Contemplative Prayer 2016

Meets: 2nd Tuesday of each month at 11 am and on the 4th Thursday at 8 pm in St Martin's


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 August we meet as usual on Tuesday 8th August at 11 am and on Thursday 24th August at 8 pm in St Martin's.  Anyone who would like an hour or so of quiet and peaceful meditation and contemplation is very welcome.  The basis of our prayer will be Isaiah 43.18-19 where God says to the People of Israel through Isaiah: 'Do not remember the former things ... see, I am about to do a new thing'. In the stillness we become more aware of what God has in store for us and lay the future in his hands.


In September the dates are Tuesday 12th September at 11 am and Thursday 28th September at 8 pm.  The saying used will be: 'My people ... I am understanding.'  Proverbs 8.14
