If you're looking to enrich your prayer life and explore new ways of praying the Closer course is for you.
Closer is a practical course in Christian Spirituality that offers personal exploration, experience and sharing of various ways of praying.
It will encourage you to:
- experience different ways of praying
- share your prayer experiences with others in small groups
- learn about establishing a rhythm of prayer life, and
- look at how your prayers may help in discernment and decision making.
"For me, before the Closer course, prayer was a one-sided relationship with God. I knew Jesus loved me but it hadn’t sunk from the head to the heart. The Closer course helped me make the journey of this knowledge from head to heart.” (Radi Doncheva,’Closer’ participant).
How it works
The course normally runs across 7 sessions spaced out over 9 months on a Saturday, at venues in Chatham and Chislehurst. Since the lockdowns, we have continued to offer the course on Zoom.
To give you a better idea of what it is all about, watch this short film in which Susanne Carlsson - Diocesan Spirituality Coordinator - and a previous participant, speak about the course.
