Benefice Advent Course – Who are we praying to?


Published on: Thursday October 31 2019, 12:23 pm

This year’s Advent Course is focussing on prayer – why we pray and who we’re praying to.

The course is written by Principal of St John’s College Durham, David Wilkinson, who has Ph.Ds in astrophysics and theology, and includes contributions from churchgoers of several denominations.

David Wilkinson helps us to engage and reflect on why we pray and who we are praying to, and helps us to relax into the idea of prayer as an ongoing conversation which is at the very heart of our relationship with God, and which can happen at any time and in any place.


The course is in four sessions, but don’t worry if you can’t make it to all of them – come to what you can. Everybody welcome!

There are 3 groups – please contact the group leader directly to sign up!
