Apply to join the Spiritual Listening course

This course is about the practice of listening, attending to a person’s relationship with God. So a typical session will include time for listening to one another, time for our own prayer and reflection, as well as some teaching from the front. Participants will need to come with a willingness to be open about their own relationship with God as well as open to others who may be very different to them.

Participants are expected to assign some time each day for their own prayer. Additionally a written or oral journal of reflections on listening experiences will be kept, and there will be assignments to complete between sessions. Approximately an hour per week (in addition to personal prayer time) should be allowed for this.

Course dates:

Tuesdays 27 Sept, 11 & 25 Oct, 22 Nov, 6 and 13 Dec 2022, 10.00am – 4.00pm at St. Peter's Church, Stoke-on-Tern, Shropshire, TF9 2EZ
