Enjoying God's World: 24th May 2020

Welcome to this evening’s Quiet Space. We begin and end with words from the seventeenth century poet and spiritual writer Thomas Traherne, and then are invited to spend time reflecting on words from Psalm 104, accompanied by photographs from this spring, allowing space between each section.

Change and Growth: 17th May 2020

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.
