MISSION CAPSULE: With support from Presbyterians Sharing … Two Rivers Church in Guelph, Ontario is exploring new ways of being the church. A recipient of the PCC’s Supporting Ministry Grant, the ministry is made up of “Living Rooms,” where people gather together in homes for meals and conversations that draw them deeper into friendship in Christ. They recently began The Prayer Project, which encourages spiritual depth, wisdom and maturity among it’s members through prayer. The Prayer Project is a multi-faceted approach to forming missional apprentices of Jesus, through a variety of initiatives that include a weekly contemplative prayer walk, a Healing prayer Team, as well as special events dedicated to communal prayer.
