Another great breakfast!

Thanks to the team who cooked and served nearly 50 breakfasts in the hall on Saturday 9th February. We were overwhelmed by the number of folk, aged from 0 to 80+,  who arrived. Some had the full cooked breakfast, others settled for coffee (or tea) and cake, while some managed both.

Our next breakfast is scheduled for Saturday 2nd March 10am – 12noon in Llanishen Village Hall.

 

An invitation: a Week of Accompanied Prayer

A week of what??!!

A WAP is one way to go on retreat – in daily life, without going away to a retreat house. Those taking part meet together at the beginning – perhaps on the Sunday afternoon – to be introduced to ways of praying with a passage from scripture. Then, each day during the week, they undertake to spend about half an hour praying by themselves and then meet with the person who is ‘accompanying’ them for no more than half an hour. That person will listen to what happened in their prayer time and offer suggestions for what to pray with next. At the end of the week everyone meets together again to celebrate what has happened during the week.

If you’ve never done something like this before, it may sound scary but it can be a wonderful experience of drawing close to God and receiving support, encouragement, guidance.

It would be a good way to make space for Jesus in the busyness of Christmas preparations.

The dates are Sunday 2nd December – Saturday 8th December.
Your prayer time can be when and where you choose; individual meetings would take place at the Vicarage.

If you would like to know more, even if you can’t manage this particular week, do talk to Janet.

Praying the Lord’s Prayer

Jesus’ disciples saw the difference prayer made to Jesus himself and they asked him to pass on a few tips. And so he taught them what we know as The Lord’s Prayer.

A group is gathering over 5 Monday evenings to think about that prayer – what does it say and what does it mean?

We are using a booklet from the Pilgrim Course – information is on www.pilgrimcourse.org
You can order the book (£6) from Amazon or ask Janet to order for you.

 

The next meeting is on 8th October in the vicarage.
7pm coffee and catch-up
7.20pm discussion
finish by 9pm

If you can’t get to the meetings you can still listen to some of the audio and/or watch the videos on the Pilgrim Course website
