Welcome to Quiet Space! Take time to quieten yourself, light a candle if that helps and move into the Quiet Space - Alone and Together.

Change and Growth: 17th May 2020
Whatever activity and distractions there are around me, Whatever worries and concerns are vying for my attention, I begin this quiet time by finding that centre of stillness within me, settling into a moment of peace, asking for the peace that only God can give.

Our Daily Bread: 3 May 2020
During this time of ‘cocooning’ we may find our relationship with food has changed. Perhaps we spend more time thinking about where, when and how to get the food we need. Some items are scarce – we delight in the surprise of obtaining flour or yeast. We may have more time to cook with care. For those who don’t have the resources to feed themselves properly and for those who help them, this is a difficult time.

Easter Sunday 12 April 2020
Before we begin, gather around you a small selection of items that you find especially life giving and enhancing - photos of friends and family, a favourite picture or artefact, a gift from a special person, a beautiful shell or stone .... You now have before you some of your most significant possessions.
