Contemplation As A Gift

Foundation in Bristol

It can sometimes feel like the church is preoccupied with methods of church growth, discussing strategy, developing mission action plans, and resourcing leadership. During lockdowns it fascinating to see the resurgence of contemplative prayer and contemplative practices as people sought new ways to deepen their roots in the Christian faith. Religious community life for centuries has pointed to the riches of the Christian tradition.

This series will explore four contemplative communities that have emerged in the last decade that seek to anchor people in the roots of the Christian tradition with an openness, a humility and a joy.

HeartEdge: An international, ecumenical movement galvanising churches to be at the heart of their communities whilst being with those on the edge. Catalysing communities of hope that reimagine church and society through commerce, culture, compassion and congregational life.
