Wednesday Vespers

From Wednesday 9 February 2022, we will once again return to in-person gatherings in the St Mary’s Welcome Centre. However, we will continue to offer an online option, live-streaming Vespers to our Facebook page for those who are unable to join us in the building. 

Vespers is an open environment for people exploring faith, just looking for a quiet space or interested in practicing contemplation, mindfulness or contemplative prayer. From Autumn 2021, we are again meeting in-person on Wednesdays at 7.30pm, this time in the St Mary’s Welcome Centre (our church hall, located just across the churchyard from the our church building).

Vespers lasts for exactly 40 minutes and features a poem, a reflection, two pieces of choral or instrumental music, two periods of stillness and a closing blessing. And while we draw on over a thousand years of Christian contemplative practice, Vespers is for everyone, regardless of background or belief.

We also live-stream Vespers to St Mary’s Facebook page for those who are unable to join us in the Welcome Centre.
