Prayer is very much at the heart and soul of our community.
We come together each day for Morning (7.30 am), Midday (12.45 pm) and Evening (5.00 pm) Prayer. Silent meditation follows Evening prayer. If you are on a residential retreat you would be very welcome to join us in our daily prayer.
There are also weekly groups held at the House of Prayer which seek to deepen our relationship to God.

CENTERING PRAYER GROUP
Led by Sister Anne
Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer, following
the teaching of Father Thomas Keating, which prepares us to receive
the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s
presence within us. This method of prayer is both a relationship with
God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Every Wednesday from 7.30pm – 8.30pm
Stillness, Silence, Simplicity. A way that leads us into the centre
of our being to discover the spiritual reality of God. This group follows
the teaching of Father John Main OSB and is part of the World Community
for Christian Meditation which is a contemporary, contemplative community
and welcomes people of any tradition or none. Please drop in anytime.
Every Saturday from 10.30 – 11.30am
Every Monday from 7.30 – 8.30pm
The group is charismatic, open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. There
is a time of shared prayer, scripture, teaching, hymns and silent prayer.
It is open to Christians who seek to be part of a praying community.
Every Tuesday from 7.30pm – 9.30pm
