Contemplative Prayer 2019

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, September 10th, at 11 am in the Headley Room in Church House and Thursday, September 26th at 29, Hereford Close.  The saying for this month is from Matthew 17.20; If you have faith as small as a mustard seed ... nothing will be impossible for you.  Our prayer this month gives us a way to surrender to God and rely on him for everything.  This is 'faith'.  However insignificant we feel our faith to be, it enables us to meet what life throws at us, day to day.


Tuesday, October 8th ast 11 am in the Headley Room in Church House and Thursday, October 24th at 29, Hereford Close.  This month the saying will be: Mark 5.36: 'Do not fear, only believe.'   Fear and anxiety can be like a dark cloud which cuts us off from God as surely as a switch cuts off the electric current.  Faith comes to us as a gift and can make all the difference in the midst of that dark cloud.
