Exploring Prayer

Join us in the early months of 2024 for an exploration of prayer. This will not be a manual on how to pray, but will be a reflective and open ended approach to the rich variety of prayer. We will look at both the practice of prayer and the theological questions it raises, Our exploration will include consideration of:

  • ways of praying
  • ways of thinking about prayer
  • the implications of prayer for the nature of God and humanity
  • what can we ask God for?
  • how can we be guided through prayer?
  • prayer and experience of the divine
  • prayer in scripture and as a way of relating to scripture
  • spiritual disciplines.

The course will be led by our curate, Revd Dr Gary Eaborn, whose doctoral thesis was on the subject of Prayer and Theology.
