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. You have found the main collection which is under Spirituality. Scroll down to find links and also visit the Seasons pages. There are also opportunities to attend times of reflection and contemplative services such as Taize services.
A flavour of what has happened previously:
Still Mondays, a monthly cycle of contemplative reflection, from 12.00-1.15. Please refer to the calendar on the Resources tab.
A time of music and reflection at our Taizé service on Sunday 3 March.
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
St Mary's is open throughout the year to provide space to reflect, but not every day. In addition to the regular openings and events in Advent, Christmas and before Easter we usually open on New Year's Eve and more frequently in the summer. 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".
