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.

Dates: (Fridays) 18th October, 15th November, 20th December 9.45am – 12:00 Noon

Outdoor Pentecost Service at Four Oaks

Pentecost Sunday was planned as a Local Arrangement at Four Oaks. We decided to use the opportunity to hold our second outdoor service. The sun shone as we set up and as more people arrived, we had to find more chairs!

It was an uplifting service of praise and testimony. To the delight of young and old, a bubble machine reminded us that the Holy Spirit lifts ‘our’ Spirits, makes us joyful and colours our lives.

As we worshipped together we were reminded that our faith and witness in our neighbourhood needs to be ‘outside our church walls’ as much as possible.
