St. Thomas Community Peace Garden
Our beautiful Peace Garden is now open for all to use. Please see our poster for details about when it is open.
* Would you like to explore living in a small community with others who are searching for God and a way of life integrating faith and action?
*Would you welcome a space to develop your prayer life, share your journey of faith with others and be active in God’s loving involvement in the world?
* Would you like to be associated with such a community?
If your answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’ come and join us for our meetings to explore this through conversation and prayer on:
The meetings include space to eat together, get to know each other, reflect on Scripture and time to pray – for the community, the concerns we bring and our town. Come and join us – all are welcome!
Since March 2016 people of different backgrounds and ages have attended fortnightly prayer meetings. In June, the first residential member moved into the Vicarage.
There is space for three further residents, and our rhythm of life will take into account the diverse circumstances of members, which may include students, people exploring a call, people in employment or a couple. There are also a number of non-resident Community members. We welcome enquiries from anyone who is excited by our vision, and we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please, contact the Revd Jutta Brueck. email email@example.com, or Helen Waters firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 01473 743341 if you would like to know more.
