Pathways to Prayer

"Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests . With this in mind be alert and always keep on praying."
- Ephesians 6:18

What is “Pathways to Prayer”?

This is a wonderful way to explore fresh perspectives on patterns and styles of prayer, meditation and contemplation through a diverse range of workshops.

It works best as a morning or afternoon which can open with a short time of worship, a Bible reading and a short talk on prayer followed by a choice of hour long prayer workshops where participants can try out  a way of praying which is new to them. After a short break the workshops are then repeated so participants can try a different experience. The time concludes with a few minutes together at the end for a final prayer.

Workshop leaders are drawn from a variety of traditions across the diocese according to the topics requested.

Recent workshop themes have included...

  • Lectio Divina
  • praying though the senses
  • Using prayer stations
  • Praying out loud in small groups
  • Praying in the Franciscan tradition
  • Praying with children
  • Prayer journaling
  • Prayer and meditation

If you would like to have a Pathways to Prayer event in your parish or deanery, please contact Gill Ireland, who can give you more information, help you organise your event and find you workshop leaders for your session.
