Thank you to all who came, and all who led sessions so richly and generously at the TKC Creative Prayer Workshop. It was a wonderful day brimming with inspiring, diverse and creative ideas for connecting in prayer, and finding deep prayerful wells in which to simply dwell with God.

'It was great to hear from so many passionate prayer leaders from across the denominations, on such a wide range of approaches to prayer’, said one attendee.

'The whole day, every single workshopand presentation, were without exception excellent and very thought provoking. Our church’s group felt truly inspired and will certainly be taking lots of these ideas on board.It was wonderful to have so many practical, hands on experiences. It was also great to be an ecumenical group, a taste of what the Christian church should be about’,
commented another attendee.

The Creative Prayer Workshop offered a taste of the richness that beckons during our ecumenical and global prayer together in the TKC Novena 2017.
‘The richness of ideas was amazing’, said another attendee as they left.
