Bristol

Welcome to Contemplative Outreach Bristol

We’re a brand new branch, starting October 2016 in response to the growing interest in Centering Prayer. We have formed to offer support for people practising Centering Prayer in the area and to assist with setting up new groups.

We have trained presenters who can give introductions to the method and background of Centering Prayer in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

We shall also be offering retreat and quiet days for those who may not be able to get to a regular group, and for those who would like to deepen their practice of Centering Prayer. So watch this space for more information, or better still, join our mailing list! contemplativeoutreachbristol@outlook.com

If you would like more information about Centering Prayer events in the area, or to be added to our mailing list, contact us on contemplativeoutreachbristol@outlook.com
