Sunday 14 July, 10.30 -11.30 am: Glimpses of Delight

Gerald Massey wrote, “not by appointment do we meet delight or joy; they heed not our expectancy. But round some corner of the streets of life they of a sudden greet us with a smile.”
We will reflect on a miscellany of voices from the past which speak of the wonder of Summer.
The service will be led by Tom Grimshaw.
You would be so welcome to join us.

How is a Unitarian community like a mountain?  Join us for a very informal, family friendly, cafe church style service to find out!  We will be exploring the spiritual lessons of mountains and our sense of belonging to the wider Unitarian community as we celebrate GA Sunday (General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches).
Refreshments will be provided. Led by Laura Dobson. All welcome.

Tuesday 25 June, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Meditation and mindfulness

In these turbulent times we often seek a means of coming to ourselves, of revealing the natural harmony between our body, thoughts, feelings, and spirit. In this meeting we shall try some simple methods of mindfully observing our inner world and returning to our innate wisdom, so that we can go back to the outer world and act for the good of all.
No previous experience of meditation required.
Led by Mike Rutter. All welcome.

Sunday 23 June, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Earth calling

The Earth is calling us to action. Sharing readings, visualisations, songs and words, we reflect on ways to move from fear and guilt towards listening to the Earth and all her children, and making decisions based on love, compassion and empathy.

Led by Julie Wolstenholme. All welcome.

Friday 21 June, 7:30 – 9:00pm: Earth Spirit Circle – Summer Solstice

PLEASE NOTE THIS GATHERING IS NOT AT THE CHURCH! WE WILL MEET OUTSIDE THE CAFE IN LONGFORD PARK – PLEASE BRING SOMETHING TO SIT ON AND WATERPROOFS JUST IN CASE! (If it is pouring down with rain we will retreat to the church for shelter)

Join our informal gathering to celebrate the Summer Solstice, the festival of fulfilment and joy. At this time we we pause to count our blessings, celebrate our achievements, and appreciate the beauty of the earth and one another.
This year our celebration will have a heathen flavour. We will work with the seasonal energies through meditating, singing, chanting and sharing our insights. Please feel free to bring poems, songs, stories or other offerings to share with the group.
After the circle celebration we will share seasonal food.
Led by Laura Dobson and Martin Singer. All welcome.
