Registered participants come together for a full-day Introduction to Centering Prayer Worshop on Saturday, January 19 from 10:30am-3:30pm. Four follow-up sessions on Wednesday evenings at 6pm, January 23 to February 13 further develop skills and healthy prayer regimen.

Facilitated by experienced practioners commissioned by Contemplative Oureach Ltd. (in Vancouver through Contemplative Outreach of Greater Vancouver) who teach the practice and benefits of centering prayer in daily life. 

Registration is now closed... with the information retained on this page so details of the event are still available. Taking the course is not a restriction to participating in Centering Prayer at Lynn Valley United, so you are welcome to drop in any Wednesday at 6pm. If you are seeking an introduction course or information about a group in the lower mainland, please be in touch with the Contemplative Outreach.

Participants are asked to wear loose, comfortable clothing- in layers if you tend to get hot or cold easily. The church will be open 30 minutes prior to the beginning of all sessions for people to have a snack, connect with other participants and leave spaciousness to prepare yourself to engage in the practice. While every care will be taken to address common food sensitivities, if you have severe reactions that limit what you can eat, you may feel more comfortable bringing your own food.  Refrigeration and heating are available in that case.

If you have any additional questions, please call the church office; 604-987-2114
