Autumn Prayer Walks: Sauntering in the City

Brian Draper

We often think of prayer as being still and silent, and places of inspiration as being set apart in the quiet beauty of the countryside. But many of us live in the noise and bustle of the city; can we find sacredness in all the busyness of our urban, daily lives?

Saturday 7 October 2017 12.30 - 5pm
Tuesday 10 October 2017 12.30 - 5pm
Details of central London starting point will be sent out £15 per afternoon
(bursaries are available)
Both walks will be followed by Choral Evensong at St Paul's from 5 - 5.45pm

The word ‘saunter’ comes from the French ‘à la sainte terre’ meaning ‘to the sacred place’. Brian Draper invites us to take our spiritual inspiration as well as our pace from that. This autumn prayer walk will take us through nature, city streets and by water, reflecting on autumnal themes of beauty, change and loss. We will walk about four miles and end at St Paul’s Cathedral for Evensong.
