There is no set format, but the meeting will usually start with a time of praise and worship - including contemporary praise songs. There may be readings of short extracts of Scripture, followed by a time of silent meditation.
We usually pray for Spiritual Renewal and a fresh infilling of the gifts of the Holy Spirit (more details here); and we always set aside time to pray for the needs of those present, their families and friends, the Parish, other issues of concern, and healing ministry.

Over the years, the group has arranged several "Life in the Spirit" Seminars for spiritual renewal as well as Alpha courses,"CaFE" (Catholic Faith Exploration) courses, and other training courses and Prayer Services for the Parish.

Why "Life in the Spirit"?
We are named after the Life in the Spirit Seminars, the foundation course in learning about how to experience the power of God working in our lives.
Pope Francis is keen to encourage Catholics to develop a deeper appreciation of the work of the Holy Spirit. “Listen to the Holy Spirit because he is giving people the good news that God loves them and can renew, purify and transform their lives.” – Pope Francis, 8th May 2013.
And the Pope would like all parishes to promote renewal in the Holy Spirit: "I ask each and all of you ... organise seminars of Life in the Spirit in your parishes ...to share Baptism in the Spirit,” - Pope Francis, Worldwide retreat for clergy 2016
