Prayer and Spirituality 

Spirituality has been described as that which makes us conscious of the mystery and wonder of life and moves us to seek meaning in it. It recognises there is more to life than what we see and touch. Different things may prompt it
For Christians the source of all life and being is God revealed in Jesus Christ. Christian Spirituality is how we experience being drawn into the life and activity of God by his Spirit. It involves Prayer and study of the Bible but is much more. It is about the whole of life.

The Prayer & Spirituality Team work in a variety of ways to encourage everyone in the Diocese in the development and growth of their spiritual life. Events, resources, training and spiritual direction are some of the areas they are involved with.
