Take time out to reflect, be still, pause.
We have a growing collection of reflections, most of them based on events held
at St Mary's, Quarry Street, Guildford. This includes seasonal reflections, a Monday
lunchtime programme, and special Taize and Tenebrae services which are reflective in nature.
IN TIMES OF TROUBLE
The Church of England has a series of reflections intended for those feeling isolated and anxious in mind.
LENT AND EASTER 2020
You can find the 2019 Lent series, with paintings by Daniel Bonnell here.
ADVENT and CHRISTMAS
St Mary's Advent 2017 reflection one Little Town, Big Story by Jo Trickey. Reflection two by Sarah Hutton about Mary's story, including the question "do we tend our well"? . Reflection three How silently by Lyn McKay with a message about setting aside times of silence.
NEW YEAR , FRESH START
In previous years St Mary's has been open on New Year's Eve. We have tried to capture some of that atmosphere here.
These reflections from our New Years Eve series are about:
how light is stronger than darkness;
walking in other peoples' shoes; and
the contrasting call to "go" and "be".
