Who is the network for?
Anyone from 9 – 90 who is seeking to deepen their awareness of God, who wants to make connections between prayer and everyday life, and who wants to look beyond their local or ‘church’ concerns
Who runs the network?
We have been in existence since 2001. We are an organisation in association with Churches Together in Greater Bristol and have a small ecumenical steering group drawn from a variety of Bristol churches. Our mailing list includes people from all over Bristol.
How did it all begin?
In 2000 a Millennium Year of Reflective Prayer was held in Bristol, involving 300 people from different churches who met in monthly groups; they listened to one another talking about their experience of prayer.
After the Year was over, there was a demand for further opportunities to meet with people of other churches, and for meetings with speakers, to reflect on how God is working in people’s lives. So the Network was set up.
