Following the success of Prayer Space in School this summer we have had a number of requests to run something similar for adults perhaps during Advent. With this in mind Revd Paula is looking for a small group of creative minds to help her with the planning and creating of each space. The prayer space will be in both St Lawrence and St Bartholomew so it would be nice if the small group is drawn from across the benefice. Please email or call Paula for more details 323106
