Exploring Prayer

October 10th
Lectio Divina – Learning to chew on the word of God.

This will be done in a group format, with an increasing level of input in each ‘round’ of reading. Information will also be given about praying alone with lectio.

October 24th
God the Creator – Finding God in all things.
This will consist of imaginative prayer exercises led from the front that enable people to recognise God and prayer in the mundane activities of daily life both outdoors and indoors. Option of sharing at the end.

November 7th
Pain and suffering – Praying with Psalms.
The Psalms contain all human emotions. We will look at some psalms in the context of human pain and suffering, and then do an exercise in writing our own psalm.

November 21st 
The Gift – responding to the gift of life and faith
Fantasy prayer that brings a new dimension to conversing with God, recognising the gift of life and faith, and our response to it. This is a led imaginative exercise, and will end with creative drawing.

December 5th
Ignatian imaginative contemplation – Getting inside the Gospels.
Background will be given to enable people to get themselves inside a Gospel scene during a led contemplation. Time for sharing experiences in prayer at the end of the session.

Walk of Witness 2019

Walk of Witness 2019

On Good Friday 2019, Christians from across the area gathered in unity for a Walk of Witness through the High Street, in witness with each other and to our local community, to the importance and centrality of the events of Good Friday to our Christian faith.

Attended by Christians and Churches across the area, and supported Bognor Regis and District Churches Together, the Walk of Witness is coordinated by Bognor Regis Methodist Church, and Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church.
