LECTIO DIVINA - in Didcot and Wallingford

Lectio divina means “divine reading” or “spiritual reading”. It is a way of reading the Bible. It makes your reading a prayer. It is not Bible Study. You do not need to be a theologian, or even know much about the Bible at all.

A group meets at St John’s fortnightly , but weekly in lent and Advent, to pray using the Lectio Divina approach.
