“The Church that prays together stays together.”
On the 3rd Tuesday of the month a small group meets for prayer at 10:00am in the Lady Chapel of the Church. It is a very informal gathering and everyone is welcome. We bring our own thanksgivings and concerns that we wish to share; we remember those in need of special help or healing and people in troubled places, worldwide and near at hand.
Social activities scheduled most months, usually on the third Wednesday, in the evening. Contact Clive Simmonds to join the email mailing list. Meals and pub games are popular choices, although the group is also a good way to hear about opportunities to serve the community in practical activities. See the calendar for details of each month’s activities.
Julian Meetings are groups of people who meet regularly in order to grow in the practice of contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition. We attend the 11.00 a.m. Eucharist every fourth Friday of the month which is immediately followed by a time to wait on the God in the silence, using a quotation from Lady Julian to help us in our waiting. Bring your lunch and then enjoy the fellowship. For more information contact Shirley Rawlings or Ros Thunder.
