The Gethsemane Prayer Group

The Gethsemane Prayer Group (Kerala prayer group) started in 2008, August among the people who are from Kerala (India).The Inspiration from Spiritual Revival Ministry International charitable trust (SRM-UK) and help and support from the St Augustine's church led to the endeavour of this prayer group.

Initially, the prayer meetings were in people's houses every month. Gradually, in St Augustine's church room No 3 has been given, where the group meets on Friday after the 10.00am Mass. We do Holy Rosary, Intercession, Praise and worship, Music ministry and finishes with the Word of God.

During Lent we organise Stations of the Cross in the church. Together with the Spiritual Revival Ministry (Bangalore, India) we organise retreats, counselling, Confession, Holy Mass and Adoration. Recently we started a Night Vigil in St. Anselm Catholic Church, Pembury on every second Saturday of the month from 6pm to 12am.The help and support from both the Diocese and the church are very much encouraging for our mission.

St. Thomas, the Apostle who landed on the Malabar Coast of Kerala in AD52. Thus, Christian faith rooted on Indian soil. So Kerala is known as the cradle of Christianity in India. The gift that Apostle Thomas gave has survived century after century, and today forms the epitome of rich traditions and unflinching Christian faith.
