Abide is a series of informal prayer and worship gatherings. We meet on Mondays to Fridays at 12 noon in St Peter and St Paul church, Teddington and each daily session has a different theme. You are welcome to come along to any of the sessions as a one-off or every week. You might like to try different sessions to get a feel for what is the best fit for your life and circumstances.
Mondays - Healing Prayer
We believe that God heals today. That might be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual healing. Join us for this restorative session where you can share as much or as little as you like. We'd love to pray for you.
Tuesdays - Silence
In our busy lives it can be hard to find times of silence. Join us for Abide on Tuesdays where we will provide a calm place to just be with God.
Wednesdays - Contemplative Service
Join us on Wednesdays for a contemplative service of prayer and worship.
Thursdays 12.00 noon - Communion service
During Thursday's Abide service of prayer and worship we will share communion together.
Fridays - Psalms and Stretches
Psalms & Stretches starts with prayer and reading a bible verse. We use passages from the book of Psalms (which could be described as poetry of the bible) and then do a warm-up of gentle stretches and mobilisation exercises for the body before learning a sequence of movement that is set to the section of verses. Psalms & Stretches is slow-paced and focuses on facilitating a time where we can connect with ourselves and with God.
