CENTERING PRAYER GROUP

Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer, following the teaching of Father Thomas Keating, which prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Every Wednesday from 7.30pm – 8.30pm

CHRISTIAN MEDITATION

Please drop in anytime.
