Blessing for the Park

  We gathered in beautiful sunshine, shedding coats, sweaters and jackets. A warm September morning – a very welcome start to our look at the importance of blessing others. Grayden talked about John O’Donohue’s book Benedictus – A Book of Blessings. He read part of the introduction for us. The parts that really stuck me… Read more »

Colours of the Year

God has blessed us with a wonderful spectrum of colours since we started meeting in the Park. This morning we met in among the flower beds, by the fountain and under a beautiful rose arbour. I was sent an annual report from a vicar friend of ours called Tessa. It described everything in terms of… Read more »

Best Laid Plans …

Jon led us in Third Space a few weeks ago on the theme of clouds. He had been inspired after coming across a plaque for Luke Howard the namer and classifier of clouds.

Sunday morning found us constructing a huge cube made out of canes.   Jon must have designed this for a team building exercise???? Laughter, co-operation, vision and initiative isn’t that what fellowship is all about.           Jon explained that the cube we had constructed was the same size and shape as… Read more »

Easter Sunday

We all met in the bandstand (welcome to Jon’s family who have not been before and Anthony). After most of us tried ice skating on the frozen puddle we stood together in the sunshine.   This is the day: When tears are wiped away, Shattered hearts are mended, Fears are replaced with joy. This is the… Read more »

Easter coming… Spring is in the air … What’s that Soul Space cancelled because of blizzard conditions? Snow underfoot actually in the bandstand. Unheard of in the three and a half years we have been meeting and its nearly the end of March. Have a happy and blessed Easter. I hope that we won’t be… Read more »
