NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries

 

Shared Pulpit: Spiritual development and worship service training

in April and May

Our new Temporary Minister, Rev Kate Dean, will be leading a series of workshops and facilitated sessions to help Unitarians reflect on their spiritual journey and consider approaches to taking part in a Sunday worship service. Weekly sessions will take place on Monday evenings. In addition, there will be two Sunday afternoon workshops looking at how to prepare and lead a service.

Shared Pulpit: Six Monday evenings (7.00pm-9.00pm) from 4th April onwards 
These sessions aim to help us to explore our personal and spiritual development by examining our spiritual journeys. Discoveries could be used as a basis for a sermon or address, but there is really no obligation to lead a service.

Worship Workshops: Sunday afternoons (1.30-4.00pm) on 17th April and 8th May
The first Worship Workshop on 17th April will look at the nuts and bolts of putting together a Sunday service. In the second on8th May, we’ll explore alternative forms of worship, including Table Service (set around a meal), Cafe Connect (discussions/sharing, similar to Death Cafe), engagement groups and the Chapel’s own evening service.

You’ll benefit most by attending as many of the sessions as possible, but you won’t be required to attend all the sessions. 

Please register by 3rd April! Contact revkatedean@gmail.com, text/call 07870 322 519 or sign up using the sheet on the Stewards’ Table.

‘Finding the spaces between’

Rev Kate Dean

‘Labour is a craft, but perfect rest is an art. It is the result of an accord of body, mind and imagination.’ – Abraham Joshua Heschel. As the Sunday ‘day of rest’ merges into the rest of the week, what might we learn from the Jewish tradition of ‘keeping Sabbath’?

Sunday 17th April (7.00 pm)

‘Finding the spaces between’

Rev Kate Dean

We will reflect on the traditional ‘day of rest’ and the Jewish tradition of ‘keeping Sabbath’.
