Booklet: Try Praying
Prayer is life-changing, but can often be difficult to ‘get into’. This Prayer page will bring together our growing range of resources, teaching materials and videos from various courses and initiatives going on, to help us in our approach to prayer individually and with others.
Pocket Prayer guides
These pocket sized booklets have been created to help existing Christians enrich their prayers, trying out new ways of connecting with God.
We have 5,000 copies of each booklet to give away to people within the Diocese of Gloucester (P&P payable as required). Subsequent print runs will need to be paid for at a cost price of 17p per individual booklet. Additional copies can be ordered, please click here.

Bishop Robert on prayer:
From the Loved and Liked website: We wanted to go back and explore who we were as ‘real people’ – all different with different joys, hurts, experiences and created differently in the first place. We wanted to look at how, perhaps surprisingly, we all have unique stories which are worth sharing and might also be worth taking to the next level.
We created this course material, reviewed it with leaders in different denominations and areas – city and rural. We then ran pilots in different areas with different leaders, reviewed it and refined it again. It has big questions, big challenges, food, fun and fellowship as we journey together.
The Pilgrim Way is a new guide to the core beliefs of the Christian faith. Set out in a question and answer format, it follows one of the Church’s very earliest ways of teaching and training disciples.
