Finding a Rhythm of Life - Prayer in Today's World
What can New Monasticism teach us?
Join us at Guildford Cathedral for the next diocesan day on prayer featuring a key note speaker followed by workshops on modern communities of prayer.
Open to all, the day promises to be richly rewarding as we listen and learn from Ian Mobsby, workshop leaders and one another. Bring your questions and reflections. There will be an opportunity to write them down and share them. What might prayer look like in your life and community after you’ve attended this day?
Aim of the day:
- to engage with where prayer and spirituality are growing on the edges of church life
- to explore fresh rhythms of prayer in daily life
- to build on Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Festival 2018
Ian Mobsby is a writer, speaker, missioner, founding member of the MOOT community who leads the Wellspring community and is Mission Adviser to a number of Dioceses in the Anglican Communion in addition to being Priest-in-Charge of St Luke's Peckham.
