The meeting starts with some simple relaxation exercises, a short passage from the Bible to reflect upon in the half hour of silence, followed by a time of sharing of our experiences if people wish. James

    Dying Matters

A series of question cards are used to encourage conversations and to listen to others’ perspectives and experiences in small groups. The sessions are open for people of all faiths, doubts and none. To book a place on one of these sessions please contact Rev James Tomkins jamestomkins@btinternet.com 01844 275944 stating your preferred date.

    Fabric Projects at St. Dunstan’s and St. Peter’s

We hope to meet the cost of these projects through existing funds, legacies and previous fund raising activities.

Short break at Sarum College, Salisbury
I have recently spent a weekend here and I noticed they have a variety of day courses exploring faith at a cost of about £60. The courses include ‘stained glass’ where you follow the journey of a stained glass window from inspiration and design through its different processes to installation and ‘Faith in fiction’ that explores the work of various novelists. Full details of the many different courses can be found on http://www.sarum.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018-19-Course-and-Events-Brochure.pdf?x52922 The idea would be to drive down together (car sharing), spend a night or two in the college (a unique experience in the Cathedral Close), enjoy Choral Evensong at the cathedral and other attractions the city and the surrounding area has to offer.

Short break at Sarum College, Salisbury
I have recently spent a weekend here and I noticed they have a variety of day courses exploring faith at a cost of about £60. The courses include ‘stained glass’ where you follow the journey of a stained glass window from inspiration and design through its different processes to installation and ‘Faith in fiction’ that explores the work of various novelists. Full details of the many different courses can be found on http://www.sarum.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018-19-Course-and-Events-Brochure.pdf?x52922 The idea would be to drive down together (car sharing), spend a night or two in the college (a unique experience in the Cathedral Close), enjoy Choral Evensong at the cathedral and other attractions the city and the surrounding area has to offer. If you are intersted please me know Rosemary 344417
