Prayer captures many ways of expressing spirituality and responding to God. This is best captured for us in our experience of Jesus Christ and his Spirit, The Living Word.
We recognise a diversity of Christian spirituality traditions and encourage a deepening understanding and practise of their wisdom.
Birthed in a Baptist tradition we particularly value the prayerful personal and collective reading of the bible as a means of connecting with the Living Word as well as participation in the sacraments of Eucharist and Baptism.
We see the prayer that Jesus’ invited us to pray; ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ as instructive for spirituality and practical living.
