In our Spiritual Practices groups we explore simple and transformative traditions such
as mindfulness, gratitude, hospitality and discernment. Sessions offer both needed individual space and group time, where in the safety of sacred space, and at their own pace, participants can explore their own internal response to the urgings of the Holy within us. It is a place of trust where we encourage and support each others growth. Meetings generally consist of a check in with members of the group, a short meditation, a reading or presentation, individual reflection time, and sharing of reflections.
The Spiritual Practices group meets on alternate Fridays at 10:00 am in the upstairs parlour. All are welcome. Please contact the church office for specific dates.
