God in the Garden
Mondays 13/20 May & 3 June, 7-9pm in St Matthew’s House
The bible and the Christian spiritual tradition repeatedly use imagery drawn from natural processes of growth to explore the development of God’s life within us. Using input, discussion and prayer exercises these three evenings will explore how we enable our lives to become rooted in God, to grow in God’s life and so bear fruit. You don’t need to be a gardener!
Led by Chris Chapman, Spiritual Formation Adviser for the Diocese.

Praying the Bible

The Word of God is food for Christian living. How do we make room for this word in prayer? We will explore a range of ways of prayerful reflection based on bible passages
