Exploring Ancient Paths

Starting in October 2021, Jill Weber at 24-7 Prayer is running “Exploring the Ancient Paths”. This is an 8 month learning community designed to equip disciples of Jesus to love God and love their neighbours by drawing from the riches of historic monastic prayer communities and Houses of Prayer in the 24-7 Prayer movement. It runs fortnightly on Tuesday evenings from October 2021 to May 2022. The first Tuesday each month is an online ‘master class’ with all the other cohorts and a guest speaker. The second Tuesday each month is a shared meal with the Southampton cohort, where we reflect and learn together. 

Topics Include: 

  • Introduction to New Monasticism 
  • Introduction to Spiritual Formation
  • Discerning where God is at Work in Your Life
  • Appreciating the Whole Body of Christ
  • Prayer
  • Hospitality
  • Gospel, Mission & Justice
  • Crafting a Rule of Life

In addition to the Tuesdays, there is a book to read each month, practical exercises and a commitment to at least 2 hours in prayer each week, beyond your normal personal prayers. There will be a one-day spiritual formation retreat in the spring. You are also expected to be receiving spiritual direction whilst part of the learning community.

We need at least 6 people to sign up to this to make it viable. Being part of this learning community may well be a life-changing chapter of your life! 

There is a suggested fee of £250, but also an option to make a donation of what you can afford.
