Holy Habits: Deeper into Prayer July to September 2018

Deeper into Prayer will be led by members of the Crofters Spirituality Group at the invitation of the North Yorkshire Coast Methodist Circuit.  Crofter members include qualified Prayer Guides and those experienced in leading people to explore and deepen their prayer life.  ‘Crofters’ is an ecumenical group who request that sessions are advertised locally and ‘open’ to anyone wishing to participate.  

Each session will be 90 minutes long (including refreshment time) and will ‘stand-alone’ but there will be maximum benefit if the full course is attended.  

The circuit is providing the venues and hospitality for a 6 week course + 1 introductory session and 1 closing session. We are very grateful to the churches listed below who have responded so generously to the request to host sessions.

We offer each session twice in a week, held in different areas of the circuit and at different times of day i.e. 1 during the daytime and 1 evening session, to give the opportunity for as many people as possible to attend.  Hospitality and refreshments will be provided by the hosting church.
