Centering Prayer

Silence and Stillness
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian contemplative prayer—a practice of silence and stillness, making ourselves available to and aware of God’s presence.

A group meets weekly at the church to practice Centering Prayer. All are welcome to join; no experience necessary!

Every Tuesday evening      
18h15 at the church

Centering Prayer Workshop – Saturday 18 January

Centering Prayer is a Christian contemplative practice–a discipline of silent prayer aimed at tending to the presence of God in one’s own life. On Saturday 18 January, from 9h30 to noon, there will be a workshop introducing Centering Prayer held at the ELCG, led by Father Charles Christophi, a local Roman Catholic priest trained in the practice.

Whether you have tried Centering Prayer before or not, this workshop is a great opportunity to practice this powerful way of slowing down and paying attention to God. All are welcome to join; there is no cost for the workshop.

If you’d like to join, please send a message to: office@genevalutheran.ch.

This is a great opportunity to pause at midday for silence and tending the presence of God. The group is open to anyone, and you’re free to simply come whenever you’re available—weekly attendance is not required. Please spread the word.
