Welcome to Contemplative Outreach Bristol

We have a group here in Bristol which meets weekly for Centering Prayer on Wednesday evenings during term time (including half term holidays). We also offer support for people practising Centering Prayer in the area and can offer to assist with setting up new groups.

We have a couple of trained presenters who are able to offer introductions to the method and background of the practice in the Bristol area.  From time to time we also offer occasional half day and full day retreats for those who would like to experience a deepening in Silence as well as deepening their practice of Centering Prayer.

Currently we are running our group at The Well on Wednesdays in person as well as on Zoom, from 7.15 until 8.45. All are very welcome, especially those who normally wouldn’t be able to get to a group in person. If you’d like an introduction to Centering Prayer or need help with how to join us on Zoom during these times, we can offer these by phone.

If you would like more information, or to be added to our mailing list, please do contact us on
