Day of Prayer: Waiting for God

Date Time Location Price
Saturday, 26th January 2019 10:00am - 2:00pm St Margaret's Church Free, no booking required

The 30th annual Day of Prayer will be held in St Margaret's Church on Saturday 26th January 2019.

Join us for a day of reflection led by Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP, followed by Evensong in the Abbey at 3:00pm.

Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP is a Dominican friar and Roman Catholic priest. Educated at Oxford and Paris, he taught scripture in Oxford, was involved in ministry to people with AIDS and was Master of the Order of Preachers from 1992 to 2001. He is a Sarum Canon of Salisbury Cathedral, has written What is the Point of Being a Christian, Take the Plunge: Living Baptism and Confirmation, and other books. He is an Hon. D.D of Oxford University and is an itinerant lecturer.

The Day of Prayer will explore how prayer in its different forms shapes us in faith, hope and love. We begin with faith which leads us to worship. The daily rhythm of the Church's prayer forms us in hope, leaving behind what is past and opening us to the future, and culminates in the silence in the presence of love.
