Christian Life Community (CLC)
Life at Oxford can be incredibly busy. At any given moment there are hundreds of things you could be doing and it can be hard to find the time to think, let alone pray. Christian Life Community (CLC) involves being part of a small group who meet regularly to take time out to pray together and listen to God. We try to see how God is acting in our lives and discern where he is guiding us through the ups and downs of everyday life.
A typical meeting begins with a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat, catching up on the week. We then move to a guided meditation on a Gospel passage. This is in the style of an imaginative contemplation in which we imagine ourselves in the Gospel scene either as one of the characters or as an onlooker. Afterwards there is a chance to share our reflections with each other, perhaps identifying particular points in the passage or meditation which have meant something to us. Then we move onto our prayers of intercession.
