Annual General Meeting Sunday

Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching

‘Conscience as Guide’

No institutional truth ever articulated takes precedence over your individual conscience or mine.  No one can tell you how to live, if you don’t already know in your heart.  No institutional doctrine of the church or sacred scripture can make God real for you if that concept does not first reside in your soul.  Come join us for worship this morning.

NOTE: Immediately after the service we will be dedicating a rose in memory of Ann Finer, member of the Chapel and inspiration of the Flower Group for many years. This will be followed by refreshments, before the Annual General Meeting which starts at 12.25pm. Open to all.

Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching

‘The Recipe: Wonder, Revere, Think, Live’

The great Jewish theologian Abraham Heschel once wrote that we are driven by an awareness that we are asked to wonder, to revere, to think, and to live in a way compatible with the grandeur and mystery of life.  Sounds like a good recipe for a fulfilling life.  Come join us this Sunday for thoughtful worship.

Sunday 22nd March (7pm)

‘Celebration of the Spring Equinox’
A contemplative service led by the Wheel of the Year Group

Ostara, also called the Spring Equinox or Vernal Equinox, celebrates the arrival of spring. Ostara marks the day when night and day are equal and balanced, hence the term equinox, which means ‘equal night’.  This is a time to rejoice, dance, and celebrate.
