Exploring Prayer Days

Exploring Prayer

Prayer is so much more that the few ways we might pray in church. Too often we think of prayer as talking to God, and miss out on the prayer of listening for God, of receiving from God, of finding God through creation, creativity and a myriad of other ways of being with God in our lives.

Exploring Prayer offers the opportunity to try different approaches to prayer. From silence to singing, from colour and shape to simple words, from apps to icons, from seeking help and justice to moving into action …

Opportunities to explore prayer across the generations, drawing upon ancient practices and fresh ideas.

Come and try out new ways and see what happens, find what helps you deepen your relationship with God, draw closer to Christ, be inspired by the Spirit.
