“O my God, teach me to love Thee in time and eternity.”

Bishop Richard Challoner

For the past year, Ms Easmon-Johnson (Head of the Girls’ School) and the Chaplaincy have been running a Parents’ Prayer Group that meet once a month.

These sessions allow all those attending to receiving spiritual nourishment, to discuss how we can achieve an active prayer life within our hectic daily lives and most importantly, to support one another through our own spiritual development. Each meeting has a theme and sometimes with practical elements too!

We meet on the first Tuesday/Thursday of every month, starting at 5:00pm with the aim to finish around 6:30pm. A list of the meetings this year can be seen below:
