Contemplative Prayer 2016

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, 13th November, at 11 am in St Martin's and Thursday, 29th September, at 8 pm at 29, Hereford Close, Epsom.  We know that God will never forget us and will hold us in his hands whatever illness, bereavement or sorrow we have to go through in life.  The saying this month comes from Isaiah 49.16 and speaks directly to us:- 'I will not forget you.  See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.'

 

 

Tuesday, 11th December at 11 am in St Martin's Church.  There will be no meeting on Thursday20th December.   Advent is a time of preparation, of waiting and watching.  This will be our underlying theme for this month as we look at Matthew 24.42, 44: Keep watch ... be ready'
