Third Tuesday in Every Month – Coven Court
Holy Communion with the residents of Coven Court. Congregational members are warmly invited to attend and have coffee and chat afterwards.
Every Monday evening (except Bank holidays) from 7.30 pm there is an opportunity to meditate or just simply sit in silence for twenty minutes or so.
The meeting begins with a short talk on the practice of Christian Meditation, for those wishing to learn a specific method, and ends with a brief form of night prayer called Compline. However, there is no requirement to join in. The time is simply provided to relax in complete silence from the noise and stresses of the world in the peace and quiet of your local church.
Meditation is usually regarded as an oriental practice. Not many in the West realize that it has always been practised in the Christian tradition in various forms. The contemporary form is based on that of the first Christians who formed small communities, who were known as the ‘desert fathers’. They inspired St Benedict, and it was a Benedictine monk, John Main who, in the last years of the last century, formulated a simple practice for anybody, regardless of religious background. This has now become a worldwide movement known as ‘The World Community for Christian Meditation’.
All meditation, regardless of tradition, is essentially a time for listening, as opposed to study, speaking or singing. For the Christian, it is a time to draw ‘near to God, and He will draw near to you’.
