The 3rd National Big Church Read

  ...and beyond!

The book that has been selected for this national Big Read is “How to Pray” by Pete Greig, who uses the Lord’s Prayer as a framework for considering different aspects of prayer as an interface between us and God; this is not, however, a study of the Lord’s Prayer.

The project offers a 6 week reading plan, an online discussion group and weekly videos as a follow-up to the week’s chapters. 

The book is available online from various sellers at varying prices – also, very cheaply and promptly – if you have a Kindle or use the Kindle app.  It looks as though there may be other e-book versions available – I’m not sure.  A sample from my Kindle version is linked from this page and Amazon offers a pre-view.

The link below will take you to the website so that you see for yourself what is on offer.

We are planning a couple of Evening Prayer sessions during the 6 weeks which will include a passage from the current/previous chapter(s) and an opportunity for informal and relaxed discussion. 

The first of these will be at 7:00pm on Friday 11th June:

Friday 11th June, 7.00pm - Evening Prayer and Zoom discussion

The second will be at 7.00pm on Friday 25th June:

Friday 25th June, 7.00pm - Evening Prayer (Compline) and Zoom discussion


Link to discussion questions for Week Five: Yielding (pt 2) (Chapters 9, 10)


Links to everything you’ll need will be available on the website.
