St. Helen's Church, set at the heart of the market town of Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, is an historic and attractive 15th century building. Why not view our Church Guide below which you can pick up in the church, open every day from 9am until 5pm, whilst exploring its wonderful historic and splendid interior. You may wish to sit quietly to rest and reflect, or join us at one of our weekly services or frequent fellowship and community events.
Team Talk 2018: Prayer - Finding the Heart's True Home
This year's Team Talk is based on Richard Foster's accessible book Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home, chosen in response to Bishop Martyn's call to the diocese to engage in prayer to our lovely heavenly Father.
Team Talk will run over seven weeks, and cover the first section of Richard Foster's book, ' Moving Inward: Seeking the Transformation We Need.'
Each week we will look at a different way or focus of praying. The sessions will be interactive, with worship, group discussion and activities as well as a little teaching input. It will be very 'light touch': no pressure on you to contribute more than you wish.
We hope that it will be a wonderful opportunity to draw nearer to God and to one another. Whether praying comes naturally to you, or you find it difficult, or are just beginning to explore prayer, do come along and give it a try.
The sessions run from 7.30pm & will finish before 9.00pm. The venues are:
20 Feb - Holy Trinity, Ashby
27 Feb - St Helen's Heritage Centre
6 Mar - St Matthew's, Worthington
13 Mar - Viscount Beaumont School, Coleorton (next to St John's Chapel)
20 Mar - Holy Trinity, Ashby
10 Apr - St Matthew's Worthington
17 Apr - St Helen's Heritage Centre
(The Pilgrim Course will take a break until after Team Talk.)
We look forward to seeing you there!
