Closer course

Are you interested in exploring new ways of praying?

Our Closer course will enable you to do just that. 

Closer... is an experiential course in Christian Spirituality that offers personal exploration, experience and sharing of various ways of praying.

This course 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.

Normally, there would be 7 sessions held on Saturdays, spaced out over 9 months, at venues in  Chatham and Chislehurst.

Under current lockdown restrictions, we are offering a condensed online version, starting on 25 January 2021.  If you are interested in taking part and to receive your Zoom invitation, please contact Susanne Carlsson, adviser for Spirituality by phone 07795167603 or by email
