Come And See – Ignatian Prayer

Please download our POSTER

There are many ways to approach God in prayer, including worshiping in the church, walking by the riverside, noticing the beauty of the hills and valleys, singing and lifting our hands in praise.

Contemplative prayer takes us into a quiet place, where we can open our hearts to listen to God, often through the words of holy scripture.  Like Mary who “ponders these things in her heart”, we can take time to let the Word of God dwell deeply and listen to what God might have to say to us.  

Prayer approaches from within the monastic traditions of the Church have a great deal to teach us about stillness and listening to God.  Ultimately, prayer is something that God does within us, inspiring us again to look outwards towards others.  Do feel welcome to come along for one or all of the sessions at Erdington Methodist Church.
