Sunday 5 April, 10.30 am: Where there is no path – an online gathering led by Tom Grimshaw

“Lead us O God, to see a way where there is no path, give us to hear music when our own songs cease, and when the warm touch of life forsakes us and our courage melts away may we stumble through the darkness unto thee.”
Powell Davies

Join us as Tom Grimshaw leads our reflections on finding grace in difficult times. All welcome.

Spring Equinox Blessing, Friday 20 March

Sadly, we are unable to hold our usual gathering to celebrate the Spring Equinox today. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing today, may your day be blessed.

Blessings of the Spring Equinox by Laura Dobson
As light and dark are equal for a brief moment in the cosmic dance, may you pause today to breathe deeply of the air of inspiration, feel the warmth of the fiery sun of passion on your skin, drink deeply from the waters of the well of belonging, and touch the sacred grounding earth beneath your feet. May you find the balance you need, today and every day. Blessed be.

ANNOUNCEMENT – CHURCH CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

It is with regret that we have to announce that all our gatherings at the church are cancelled for the foreseeable future, as advised by the latest government guidelines on the coronavirus pandemic. We hope that this trying time will pass quickly and that we will be able to open our doors again soon. The church is not the building, but the people, and although we are unable to embrace physically, we can now embrace new ways to stay connected and support each other through this difficult time. Please contact me if you need help with anything at all.
Please keep in touch with me and each other
Sending you all much love and many blessings
Laura

Tuesday 10 March, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Lent Meditation

Join us for a meditation using the practice of Lectio Divina, a form of contemplation from the Christian tradition involving reading and reflecting on a piece of scripture. We will use poetry rather than scripture to bring us into a contemplative space. Come and explore your own reflective process as we deepen into silence together.

Led by Sheila Cass and Sue Cockerill every Tuesday evening in Lent. All welcome.

Sunday 1 March, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Wonder

Albert Einstein said,” The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical…….he who can no longer stand wrapt in awe and wonder is as good as dead”

Our theme will be wonder. What is it; is there a place for it in what can seem at times, a not so wonderful world?

Led by Sheila Cass. All welcome.
