News of further important relationships

What a great week we had last week with several visitors to ThirdSpace – some at the bandstand and some at the pub and then at our meal on Wednesday night. It was so encouraging and enjoyable to welcome new folk and begin to hear some of their stories… On top of that, some of… Read more »

Community at the bandstand

Had a great time in brilliant sunshine and breath-taking beauty in the park this Sunday. Barbara and Grayden led, looking at Fair Trade since it was the last weekend of Fair Trade fortnight. They also linked in ideas of community and had something for us to discuss over coffee from an article on the Hope… Read more »

Pilgrimage in Pembs!

Well, we’re back from an amazing time away together of feasting and celebrating, praying and pilgriming (is that a word?), laughing and soaking up beauty and sunshine and space… We tasted a little bit of the renewed earth and have come home energised and enormously thankful!  The ThirdSpace pilgrimage day took us to Newport Sands… Read more »

Circle time!

Today at the bandstand we rememberd our core value on journeying and S led us on what we might learn from Jesus’ own spiritual journey as reflected in the story of the temptations and from then on. It was helpful to consider that he didn’t have it all sown up from the start, but that… Read more »

The start of Pilgrimage

Couldn’t believe how many braved the icy roads, pavements and cold to come last night to our first in the series of Pilgrimage.  What a good evening it was – lots to chew over in Brigid and Liam’s accounts from Lourdes which inspired and enticed.  A few of us find the idea of the process… Read more »

Snow at the bandstand!

Well we’ve done all weathers now – and lived to tell the tale despite it being -5 degrees and no-one to blame for not turning the heating on!  It was beautiful, particularly when the sun came out and it was good to reflect, light our four candles (or was that  fork handles?) and pray for the… Read more »

God in a box?

Had this sent to me by our friend Christine who’d been to a Taize service at Portsmouth Cathedral this weekend – What do you think? “It’s not all over, this birthing, there are always newer skies into which God can throw stars. When we begin to think that we can predict the Advent of God, that… Read more »
