With the Spirit as our guide:
Exploring the ministry of spiritual direction

Saturday 14 May 2016, 10am to 1pm in St. Matthew’s House, Croydon

Deeper into God:
Prayer within the Carmelite tradition

Wednesday 20/27 April 2016, 6.30pm to 8.30pm in Trinity House

mutter These two sessions will explore how we co-operate with the work of the Spirit drawing us deeper into relationship with God and outwards with God into the world. We will consider how prayer, in its different forms, allows God to form and lead us, drawing on the writings of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross.
