A chance to talk about the EU referendum result

As we are all aware the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union on Thursday. This is a result celebrated by some and a cause of great pain to others. And without question we now face times of uncertainty and momentous change.

As a church we want to help each other and our community at this time. Now, when there is much talk of division in our country, we are offering a place, at St Ives Methodist Church, to listen and talk honestly,  to reach out to each other in our differences and seeking the best way forward together.  Already there have been people in this town from Europe expressing their worries about their future and we all condemn the expressions of racism we are seeing in the news. It is our hope that this gathering will begin the process of look ahead in unity.

So, we invite you to come along to the church on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. We will have time to talk together about recent events, pray for our country and consider how we can remain a place of welcome to all? A place of healing to those so upset? A place of calm in amongst frightening headlines? And best reach out to those fearful what this means about the future?

12th June breathe

Slide1breathe is back this Sunday evening at St Ives Methodist church.

This month’s theme is ‘freedom’ a nice word but hard to make sense of in reality. Reflecting on what it is that holds us back, how can we live freely even in the midst of life’s pressures and busyness.

If you have not been to breathe before it is a reflective place for people of faith, those who are searching and those who just need to think for a while. Our time together is a creative one that uses image, video, music and simple songs, silence and scripture to listen to ourselves and God.

It would be lovely to see you if you can make it and if you can stay after for cake and a cuppa it would be great to chat.

If you have not been to breathe before, please use our car park at the back and the side door to enter as it make finding the hall easy.

Take care,

Matt and the breathe team.
