Service of Quiet Reflection
This Sunday 10 July is our service of Quiet Reflection. This is one of our more traditional services, starting at 10am and concluding with a cuppa and a chat at 11am. Today Dr Greg Morgan will be leading the service for us.
Come to Quiet 5 July
On Tuesday is something for the adults; Come to Quiet at 7pm. This is our monthly session of contemplative prayer, which includes a short discussion on a reading, a time for fellowship with a cuppa, and of course a period of contemplative prayer. If you have never done contemplative prayer before, we will explain the basics to you before you put it into practice.
Contemplative prayer has much in common with meditation. “The root of prayer is interior silence…Deep prayer is the laying aside of thought. It is the opening of mind and heart, body and feelings-our whole being- to God…During the time of prayer we consent to God’s presence and action within…It is designed to deepen our relationship with Christ.” (Quotes from Father Thomas Keating)
Take some time out from your busy life and find some time to be still with God. You will be very welcome!
Drop Inn Morning
HELPERS NEEDED This Monday 4 July is our monthly Drop Inn Morning for residents of the Shoal Bay Villa and Regency rest homes.
If anyone is able to come along and join in with a chat over morning tea it would be appreciated. It is held in the Lindesfarne Lounge (downstairs at St Aidans) at 10am. I’m told there will be cake, as there are a couple of important birthdays to celebrate!
