Call to Connect (CTC) is a ministry that offers prayer, hospitality and sharing the faith journey for women through its prayer/sharing group structure. Our aim is to strengthen the relationship between women and facilitate a deepening walk with God. Each CTC session has a prayer theme with sharing opportunities. We have two options, for either face-to-face or online gatherings, with free Starter Kits available via email. The Starter Kits contain a Prayer Segment Collection of 35 topics, using a variety of prayer styles, plus a Leaders Guide & Notes to get you going.

How to get involved: Christian meditation is a form of prayer that is concerned primarily with listening. In this form of prayer we commit to stillness, silence and simplicity. We aim to become more open and receptive to God’s spirit, who Jesus tells us dwells in our hearts, as the spirit of love. In our time of prayer we are not talking to God, thinking about God or imagining God, we are instead being with God. Please know that you’d be welcome to connect with any of these groups at any time.
