Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction, also known as Spiritual Accompaniment, is …

  • a process of accompanying someone on a journey of a deepening relationship with God, which can be of help to anyone who wants to grow in faith and spiritual practice.
  • a confidential relationship of trust between two people, in which one listens to and may pray with the other, discerning, affirming and offering guidance in the life-long journey of spiritual maturity.

Diocesan Spiritual Direction Referrals Team

Under the auspices of the Diocese of Truro, but open to all in Cornwall, the team co-ordinates a Diocesan Directory of Spiritual Directors and puts those who seek accompaniment in touch with those who offer this ministry.

Application forms are available here and an initial conversation can take place either by phone or face-face, to help to find the best match.

This will cover preferences such as male/female, ordained/lay, close to home or further afield; spiritual tradition and particular areas in which help is sought. Questions about the process of accompaniment can be addressed at this time.

An introduction will then be made. If it does not work out, either side may withdraw without embarrassment.
