Prayer Through Poetry


Reflective sessions, led by Mark Russell-Smith, working with a variety of themes and poets, which offer a space to taste the gift that poetry can bring in opening up our experience of prayer.

Mark is a retired Anglican Priest and Missionary who is now finding poetry an increasingly exciting and challenging pathway for prayer.
