Reflective Spaces – St Michael’s Church, Aldbourne

There will be no Reflective Spaces on 26 February as it is Ash Wednesday. The meeting will be merged with the Ash Wednesday evening service at Baydon.

A respite from a busy life with contemporary words, quiet songs and moments of stillness. A short act of reflective worship based on materials from the Iona Community, at 7pm on the 4th Wednesday of each month (except 26 February 2020 – Ash Wednesday)

An opportunity to reflect on aspects of Christian teaching and living and to look at our own reflections in the mirror of belief and intention.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. (1 Corinthians 13:12)
Please come and bring a friend. For further information please contact Revd Karen Rizzello [07882-055878] or Tim Marriott [01672-541734].

A big thank you to everyone who completed the questionnaire from the Whitton Parish Mission Strategy Group (MSG) and to those who attended the Church Open Morning. In each of our churches (except Axford) there is a ‘Talking Board’ where you will gradually see all the questionnaire responses posted. To allow you time to feedback to us with comments, questions or ideas only a few questions at a time will be posted (see Boards for more details).
