Prayer the focus of Norwich church Lent course
Thorpe Parish Church is holding a Lent course looking at different perspectives of prayer, including Ignatian prayer, icons and art, using music, the Bible and meditation.
Revd James Stewart said, “Lent offers us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with God and prayer is central to this. Yet how often have we wondered whether we might try different approaches to it or do it more often?” Anyone interested in exploring different perspectives of prayer is welcome to join this six session course run by Rev Stewart and Rev Hutton. The group will gather on Wednesday afternoons at The St Andrew’s Centre, Norwich NR7 0LH at 2.00 with tea and coffee, starting the study at 2.15pm. The sessions will last just over an hour.
