This is an open meeting, organised by the Birmingham Forum for Spiritual Directors and Companions, for all who might like to pray with silence but would welcome some guidance, help or encouragement. Invite anyone from your church (and others too) who might like to know more.
There’ll be an introduction to the place of silence in Christian prayer, and a time of silent prayer will be led during the evening. There’ll be information about some of the different groups in the Birmingham area who meet for silent prayer, and a selection of books and resources.
So if you know anyone who doesn’t realise that meditation or contemplation has always had a place in Christian prayer – please bring them along! The meeting is free, but people can leave a donation if they wish.
If you are coming – please email, so that we know approximate numbers.
