Festival of Prayer – Saturday 7 July 2018 - Ripon College, Cuddesdon, Oxford

In July, I am going to be leading a session at the Oxford Diocesan and BRF Festival of Prayer. The Festival organisers have asked me to help publicise the event. The day is an opportunity to step back from the busyness of life and spend time exploring prayer and different aspects of spirituality.

There will be a keynote address by John Bell, a number of different workshops to choose from and other prayerful activities, bringing together the interconnectedness of prayer and life. Take the opportunity to learn about different ways of praying and see whether they work for you - perhaps you are looking to renew an interest or try something new?

There will be the opportunity to attend up to four workshops, as well as some personal space for your own reflection as you wander through a prayer labyrinth, or embark on the village prayer walk.

I hope this event will be of interest to you.  More information including booking link here:
