Back by popular demand this autumn is the â€˜Diocesan Day on Prayerâ€™ which takes place on Saturday September 24 at St Thomas-on-the-Bourne, near Farnham.
The Revd Alan Elkins (pictured), faith and spirituality adviser for the diocese, is once again involved in organising and delivering the event. â€œLast year we were encouraged by how many people were prepared to take the time to explore prayer, and the way it can strengthen our journey with God.â€
Following on from last yearâ€™s successful format, a selection of workshops will be on offer - all with the aim of stimulating and extending prayer life.
Alan explains: â€œWe hope that there will be something to appeal to everyone; popular workshops such as Meditation for the Beginner, Contemplation â€“ the Ignation Way and Getting Started and Keeping Going, will be repeated alongside some new ones including Praying with Colour and Visualisation as a Form of Prayer.â€
Walk-in Spiritual Direction taster sessions will again be on offer,â€ which have proved popular in the past with people considering whether spiritual direction might help them on the journey,â€ adds Alan.
The day runs from 9.30am until 4pm and there will be an opportunity to worship together in the middle of the day. Booklets giving details of all the workshops will be in churches soon - look out for one and return the booking form as soon as possible please, as numbers are strictly limited. Cost is just Â£5 per person.
