image002Practical Spirituality  

"Practical Spirituality" is a quarterly series which provides an opportunity to explore how to pray and reflect in the Christian tradition. It is for those new to prayer and those who want to find fresh ways to pray.

It is co-ordinated by Richard Fox, and many of the leaders and attendees are part of the Common Ground Community and wider fellowship.

The next event is on 9 March 2019 at St Mary's led by Revd Canon Andy Wheeler.  The theme is "Seeking the Face of God". This can seem daunting, especially in the Old Testament, but Andy will help us reflect on how the New Testament explains how Jesus brings us close to God. 
Meet at 09.20 for a 09.30 start. The session will end at 12.30.

2019 dates for your diary are:
- 8 June 2019 Revd Sarah Hutton
-28 September 2019 Revd Peter and Pam Levell
- 7 December 2019 The Quiet Day Team from St Saviours Guildford
