Writing and Leading the Prayers of the People - Brian Evans
Creating corporate (congregational or group) prayers that make space for all of God’s people can be complicated. This workshop will introduce a template and resources that will encourage and assist prayer leaders in their work.
Praying Aloud: An Intimate Conversation - Christopher Page
Whether it's opening a meeting with prayer or praying around the dinner table, our hearts beat a little faster when someone calls on us to talk publicly with God.
Opening to the Breath of God: Sensing the Wisdom of the Body - Heather Page & Sharon Richmond
Explore how our prayer life is deepened through integration of body, mind and spirit.
Writing to God: Journaling as Prayer - Kit Pearson and Annalise Wall
Bring a journal and pen or pencil as we explore personal prayer through writing.
Drawing Near to God: Exploring Colourful Prayer - Kathy Fitzsimmons and Dawna Wall
Art can help bring to the surface that which is deep in our heart. This workshop will provide an open studio setting with options for exploring prayer through art. If you have a favourite medium feel free to bring your supplies. Basic supplies provided.
Praying at Home: Around the Table and the Seasons - Meagan and Rob Crosby-Shearer
Gathering as a family to bless our meals, our gatherings and one another is a huge part of spiritual formation. Come and learn together about ways to integrate a meaningful prayer life into the everyday.
