Contemplative Prayer Group

4th Thursdays, 1-2pm in the sanctuary

We are so happy to have resumed our “Contemplative Prayer on Thursday” service after 20 months in hiatus because of the pandemic! With the service theme of “The Gift of Silence”, six members of the Prayer community gathered using contemplative music, prayer, reflection, stillness and silence to feed our spiritual souls. We have been longing to be in quiet contemplation together after all these months. It was a joy for Rev. Chris to renew this prayer practice in person within the sacred space of the church sanctuary. Many thanks to Verger Sid for his help in the set up.

The empty chair is waiting for you!! Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month. For more information, contact Rev. Chris, 604-619-4824.
