Wychling, St. Margaret
Praying With Creation
Amid the isolated setting of St Margaret’s Church Wychling, we will pray together with Creation in all its wonderful glory. A time to rest in the arms of our Lord’s beauty and bounty, to be held in prayer by the mighty trees, the breeze through the grass, the song of the birds and the enormity of the sky. A time to use our senses and to attune ourselves to God’s wonderful gift to us.
There will be plenty of time to sit and reflect, to journey upon our natural grass labyrinth and to take a sensory walk in the grounds.
This gentle day will be led by Paula Jardine-Rose and Barbara Wallace. Paula is an ALM in the healing ministry and churchwarden of St Margaret’s, whose work has seen the renewal of this isolated Church. The focus for ministry has been the Care of Gods Creation, sustainability and contemplative disciplines, developing work with children in an outdoor setting with Wild Church, and the emerging Community of St Margaret, a new monastic exploration. Barbara has significant experience in leading times of prayer and is a trained labyrinth facilitator. Barbara also co-ordinates the new diocesan resource, TheCanterbury Pilgrim Prayer Pack, which invites people to explore different ways of praying.
This day is aimed at church leaders and those on church leadership teams. Numbers limited to 15
