Armchair Retreats

Seeking retreat in an anxious and frantic age is becoming popular — and understandably so! But while many of us yearn for respite from the pressures and distractions of modern life, it’s quite hard to know where to start.

Each week we’re hosting, via the Zoom conferencing system, a time of quiet centring when we can learn to allow room in our heads for silence and peace. We have simple centring exercises to help this work, and all is done in the context of Jesus, ‘Emanuel’ — God with us.

During the current coronavirus situation, we’ll also be spending a few minutes ‘passing the peace’ where we bring to mind good and precious memories; spend some moments dwelling in them; and then, if we feel free to, sharing them with each other and our families.

This is suitable for all, whether you’re a Jesus follower or not, or whether you’re a mindful starter or not. If you just want some quiet space and an encouraging environment, why not give it a try?

Every Wednesday at 19:30, and includes time for relaxed conversation. Call 01206 622712 for more info.

Note: You can run Zoom on computers and smartphones. If you don’t have any of those or your broadband is very slow, it’s also possible to join in by phone.
