Breathing Space

Breathing space

In a world full of stimulation, busyness and noise, we extend an open invitation to join us on Tuesday evenings at St Mary’s, in the words of Psalm 42, to Be Still and Know.  Meditation is an important part of Christian practice, largely lost in the West for many centuries.  In recent years there has been a growing interest in mindfulness and meditation in other traditions, so why not in our own?  Initiated two years ago by Ailsa Newby, this is an opportunity to learn to be still, to put aside for a short time each week all the cares and concerns of daily life, and to sit in silence in the presence of a loving God.  We do not promise the miraculous but over time you will notice a difference in your daily life if you are willing to give time to simply be present to God and to yourself.

We meet in the lovely candle lit Sanctuary at St Mary’s on Tuesday evenings from 9.30pm, we close the doors at 9.45pm when we begin the meditation, with a short prayer, 20 minutes silence and end at 10.15pm.  We take the silence home with us as we end our day.  Do join us for this very different prayer experience.  You would be most welcome.
