Staying in the Vine provides courses in spiritual formation and introduces spiritual disciplines.
The courses create spaces where you can: deepen your understanding of God’s love,
listen for the voice of God, and practice steps in Christian Meditation.
Introducing the courses
All our courses are interactive and intended for use in groups over a series of weeks. Participants are encouraged to encounter Jesus through personal times of prayer and led meditations in groups. Through these practices participants will grow in the knowledge and experience of God’s love.
All of our courses materials (PDFs and audio streams) are available on a pay-what-you-like basis.

Staying in the Vine Plus
The Call to Contemplation
The material emphasises the need to listen to God, to become rooted within community, and to be open to the transformational work of the Holy Spirit through the rhythms and practices of spiritual disciplines.
The candidates share their experiences, reflections and insights over a series of weeks followed by a two night retreat. The group work and the individual exercises act as ‘spiritual direction in practice’ through listening and the mutual encouragement this brings.
Candidates are given the tools to engage in a life of contemplation as part of busyness, learning to operate from the Divine Centre. They learn how to make the whole of one’s life a prayer and develop the practice of the Presence of God.
