Centering Prayer Group

Centering Prayer is one way of praying. It is meant to lead those praying to a deeper relationship with God. Centering Prayer is an ancient Christian practice and is both spiritually and psychologically sound. The practice of Centering Prayer involves silently and quietly sitting and responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to God’s presence and action within. By the use of a sacred word, the person praying gently lets go of thoughts to make space in his/her heart for God. Centering Prayer is one form of contemplation and is nurtured by regular worship and regular meditation on Scripture.
At the Kirk, we meet as a group to pray in Centering Prayer as a way of encouragement and support. The group meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 pm in the chapel at Woodland Terrace (on Farmington Woods Drive, just a short drive from the Kirk). For more information or to receive meeting reminders, please email April Austin at or speak with Warren Bock, Kirk Parish Associate.
