Norfolk and Suffolk

Our mailing list is managed by Norwich Contemplative Forum. If you sign up via NCF’s contact tab, they will also email you from time to time about events and groups that relate in a broader sense to the Christian contemplative tradition.

Please also feel free to contact Debbie House on 07757 063066, if you are interested in Centering Prayer, Welcoming Practice or attentive work.

There is currently no Centering Prayer group meeting in Norwich, but the Glaven Contemplative Prayer Group meet in North Norfolk at 5.45pm on Tuesday evenings at the Blakeney Methodist Chapel, High St, Blakeney. Paul Veitch, the facilitator, writes:

We are a group of people who meet together every week to share our contemplative practice of prayer. We are drawn to silent prayer without words. By meeting regularly we foster a communal life together and encourage each other in our daily practice. The group has always been open to anyone and although the practice is rooted in the Christian contemplative tradition, you do not have to be a Christian or churchgoer to attend.

We are together for about 40 minutes and spend 25 minutes in Centering Prayer. We then maybe have a reading. There is no hierarchy as we are all beginners and remain so but hopefully we start to find that interior silence which carries on into our daily life.

It is Christian prayer but you do not have to be a Christian or have any religious connection to join the group or practice centering prayer. We welcome anyone. If this sounds like something that interests you, come along and there is no charge!
