Is Discovering Prayer Christian?
Yep! Discovering Prayer is very grateful to Bishop Colin, the former Bishop of Dorchester, for providing oversight during the creation of the organisation. Michelle Eyre, Discovering Prayer's founder, became a Christian at the age of 19 in an independent church in South London called Ichthus Christian Fellowship. Since then she has worshipped at a variety of churches and tried out being a nun. Michelle is now a member of St Aldates, Oxford, which is part of the Church of England.
Can I take part in Discovering Prayer if I'm not a Christian?
Yes, you are very welcome. Discovering Prayer is for everyone. We use the Bible as the basis for prayer and meditation, and you're warmly welcome to take part.
How long will it take for me to get access to the library of audio prayer times?
Access is provided straightaway.
Why are you charging for prayer?
We aren't charging for prayer, we're charging to cover the costs of running a complex website and professional recordings. We want to reach tens of thousands more people, to record the whole of St John's Gospel, and to be sustainable.
Is Discovering Prayer funding anyone to drive a fancy BMW?
Er no! Discovering Prayer is a registered charity. Our aim is to keep the cost to all members as low as possible. All our finances are overseen by a board of trustees as well as the Charity Commission. We're very grateful to religious communities and organisations who have enabled us to work towards becoming sustainable: the Community of Saint Mary the Virgin, Wantage, the Community of Saint John Baptist, the Pershore, Nashdom and Elmore Trust, the Diocese of Oxford and others who have given confidentially. Without the support of members and these communities, Discovering Prayer would not exist.
