Young Adult Week of Guided Prayer

For any generous young adult (18-35) who wants to deepen their prayer life, needs help with a discernment or simply wants to explore and discover more about God and faith.

The core elements of a week of guided prayer are a time of individual prayer for half-an-hour each day, reviewing how that prayer time went, and meeting with your prayer guide for a maximum of five times in the week. There will also be introductory and closing meetings to top and tail the week with helpful suggestions for prayer and how to get the most from the experience. 

Why take part? When we are generous, God is more so. We encounter a God who loves and calls us. It can also be a great help in making or confirming decisions, big or small.
