Rotates monthly around the churches. Please check

This is an ecumenical Prayer group for the churches at Castle that will help us deepen our prayer lives and come closer to God in Quiet Reflection and Prayer. We will meet monthly in each church in rotation. We hope that the timing will enable those at work to drop in on their way home.

After greetings and refreshment there will be some opening prayers, usually a time of Bible reading and/or poetry, perhaps followed by some music. This will lead us into a short period of silence before our main time of prayer. The atmosphere will be informal, the prayers freely formatted; ‘the Spirit is the wind in the sails of our prayer’ (Michael Reeves).
