The eight session programme "The Prayer Course" started on September 2nd  in St Oswald's Leonard Rooms along with the Alpha Reunion meeting. This programme looks at prayer from a variety of different viewpoints by exploring The Lord's Prayer in depth, helping each of us grow closer to God by hearing Him more clearly and unlocking the power of prayer in our lives.

The next meetings are planned for Mondays 16th and 30th September, 21st and 28th October and finally 2nd December. Meetings are from 7.30-9.0 pm.

All are welcome !
