Learning & Growing
CHRISTIAN MEDITATION GROUP
Lady Chapel, St Peter’s Anglican Church

Email via the Contact page.
The main purpose is to share the richness of silent prayer/meditation together with other meditators (of any denomination), and thereby build our relationship with God and others in community.
Before we start, we begin to quieten our minds and prepare for silence, by listening to calming music.
We have an opening prayer and the gong sounds three times at the beginning and end of 30 minutes of meditation. There is a short reading or talk after the session and discussion may follow, before the Closing Prayer.
