This Sunday’s Services

Sunday 19 March (11.00am)
Guest Speaker Tanya Morrison
‘Talking about power’  

How do we talk about those in power?  How do we remain hopeful when things seem out of balance? Do we listen enough to supporters of the powerful?  Tanya Morrison considers these questions drawing on insights from Ursula le Guin’s ‘Earthsea’ novels and her other Taoist writings.

Sunday 19 March (7.00pm)
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.
