PLACES OF REGULAR OPEN PRAYER IN AND AROUND PENZANCE
For many Christians, the power of individual or collective prayer is the most important aspect of their lives.
Prayer stations can now be visited in most of our churches when opened, throughout the week. Please read on to find out where prayer groups meet in Penzance and should you wish to join anyone of them, you would be most welcomed.
CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER GROUP
In trying to live a Christian life, we all recognise the value of prayer, especially for those who are involved in the various activities taking place in our Churches who give so much of themselves.
Many do, of course pray privately but it is generally agreed that prayer is immensely strengthened by being together with others, even in a small group. The inner work goes much more smoothly and the intensity is much greater than during periods of solitary prayer.
Jesus said, ‘Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them’ (Matthew 18:20).
A contemplative group provides an ideal opportunity to meet together in silence and experience God’s presence. This group meets on the last Monday of each month at 8pm in St John’s Church. Everyone is very welcome to join us.
