Diocesan Day on Prayer 2019

02 February 2019 10:00

Address: Guildford Cathedral, Stag Hill, GU2 7UP

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 keynote 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.
