Explore a Rainbow!

This was a creative prayer event which was led by a group of eight people from across the circuit, and ran from May 8th to 21st. It was taken to four venues in the circuit, Highcliffe, Trinity, Verwood and Wimborne, spending two days at each venue.

Each station was based on a colour in the rainbow and focussed on a prayer theme:

  • Red - Love/Joy
  • Orange — New beginnings/Sunrise
  • Yellow — Thanksgiving
  • Green — Rest
  • Blue — Cleansing/Confession
  • Indigo — Awe/Wonder
  • Violet — Loss/Grief

People were invited to explore the rainbow of prayer at their leisure, with the opportunity to enter into the activities or reflections at each position and they were invited to take a bead from each colour station to make a rainbow bracelet to remind them of their experience.

Some of the activities included: tie a yellow ribbon on a tree for thanks; making scrabble letters into words for loss; creating a sunrise of new beginnings; writing your name on a stone and placing it into cleansing water.

Those who attended said they appreciated the time to be quiet and to reflect as well as being able to try new ways to pray, often with fewer words and more emotions.
