Mission – Lay Development Day – Saturday 20th August 2022, Lochgilphead.

Ways of Personal Prayer

A Lay Development Day will be held on Saturday 20th August at Christchurch, Lochgilphead, on the subject of ‘Ways of Personal Prayer’.

The aim of this event is to enrich our personal prayer life by:

• Reflecting on our own present patterns of prayer

• Exploring other ways of personal prayer

We plan to have short presentations by invited speakers on ‘How I pray’, a longer presentation on personal prayer in general, and, of course, plenty of group discussion and feedback.

The day will start at 9.30 with refreshments for a 10.00 start, and will finish with tea/coffee at 3.00. Lunch will be provided.

It will be good to meet in person for the first time since November 2019! However, we also may run a Zoom version of the event in the autumn for those unable to be with us in person in August.

If you would like to attend, please book by contacting us at missionenablers@argyll.anglican.org (or by phone: Ros: 07802 746460; Chris: 07711 944807)
