Sarah studied poetry at Flinders University (Honours), and has been offering workshops in poetry and prayer for more than 15 years.

Writing prayers 60 – 90 mins
When we offer prayers in gathered worship, sometimes we want to say something in particular on behalf of the community. Sometimes we want to invite people to speak a prayer together. For our own spiritual practice, writing can be a way to pray – whether through journaling, letters to God, or poetry. 
Explore some ways that writing can enrich your community’s and your own, practice of praying. blog posts on prayer
