Autumn in the Benefice

This autumn there will be an opportunity to explore the why, how and when of prayer.  Prayer is an integral part of our faith, Jesus taught his disciples to pray, and we are called to ‘pray without ceasing’.  Whether you are new to faith or have experienced prayer over many years please contribute to this exploration of prayer and what it means to us as individuals and as a Benefice.  During the harvest season, the sermons will look at prayer and later in the autumn there will be opportunities to meet together to share thoughts about prayer and the journey of faith.



Prayer – explore informally with others the Why, How and When of prayer.

Mondays 13th, 20th and 27th November from 7.30pm to 8.30pm at The Vicarage, Wonston, DT10 2EE tel.01258 818217.

Tuesdays 14th, 21st and 28th November from 2.00pm to 3.00pm at Ibberton and Belchalwell Village Hall DT11 0EL (parking available).
