Also known as Retreats in Daily Life, these offer an opportunity for those who cannot or do not wish to make a residential retreat. The London Centre for Spiritual Direction supports churches as they seek to run these Weeks locally, exploring their journey with God. Trained guides make a commitment to support members of a local church, each meeting with a number of individuals over the period of a week.

LCSD also supports spiritual directors who offer ministry as guides on these weeks. To become a Guide on an LCSD-sponsored Week of Accompanied Prayer you will need to become a member of our Community of Spiritual Directors. The community has two levels of membership: basic (£10 per year) and directory membership (£25 per year), which as the name suggests, includes an entry in our online directory of Spiritual Directors. By becoming a member, you will benefit from being part of a support network for other directors,while receiving regular resources and updates. You will receive the monthly LCSD newsletter and other updates on upcoming WAPs and training opportunities. WAPs are offered to local churches throughout London and beyond. As such, it is vital that all guides abide by the Centre’s Code of Practice, and receive up to date safeguarding training. In some instances, DBS checks will also be necessary, and can be organised through the Centre, or within their local church. You can find out more information about becoming a member of the Community here.
