St John & St Mark Church, Bury

Listening Prayer Group

Our Listening Prayer Group meets at 7.30pm on the first Monday of each month at 150 Walmersley Road for a time of reflection and where we listen for what God has to say to us.

We have been rotating the leadership of these sessions this year so that there is a different ‘voice’ introducing the thought for the evening. Sometimes that can be about something in the news, or a passage of Scripture, a Saint's day or even a painting. If it’s helpful we also have a piece of music to lead us into and out of the period of quiet which lasts for about 30-40 minutes. There's no praying out loud, just silent reflection. So no special qualifications needed - apart from the ability to sit still! Please come.

For more on prayer take a look at the Pray as you Go website. This is a really innovative site produced by Jesuit Ministries.

Closer to home, a Christian Meditation group meets each Tuesday at 7.30pm in our side Chapel. Please follow this link to get more details or contact David McKenna at wccm.bolton@gmail.com
