"menALIVE" Scripture Journal Group

The menALIVE group is a group of men who celebrate mass every Tuesday morning at 7:30am at Mary, Mother of Mercy Church, Burleigh Waters. The group will then adjoin to a local café for a coffee and to pray on the scripture readings of the day and share the experience of their time with God in prayer in spiritual conversation.

This is not a scripture study or mediation group but a men's prayer group who are looking for a closer relationship with God by engaging in prayer inspired by Gods word in the scripture readings of the day.
