We have a change of time and venue for breathe this month. After a wonderful time last year, we are returning to Holt Island (a nature reserve opposite the church) for a summer evening of contemplation and reflection- listening to the birds singing and being cut off from the busyness of the world for just a while. And so we don’t get too cold once the sun starts going down we will begin at 6.30pm not our usual 7.30pm.
The theme we will explore together is ‘dependence’. Holt Island is an ecosystem full of things small and big, diverse and beautiful, seen and unseen that depend on each other for life. As we gather in this space we will reflect on what and who we dependent, little and large, obvious and hidden things that enable us to be. It is a simpler stripped down breathe as we can’t take a computer and projector- but there will still be the simple chants, readings from the bible, silence, ritual and of course cake!
The map below shows you where the island is if you haven’t been before.

You can access the island via a small bridge which you can get to via the Parish church grounds and you will find breathe setup in the middle of the island please follow the signs that we will have put up. You can see the Island website http://www.stives-town.info/locations/detail.asp?GetLocID=510
Please bring a camping chair (or two) if you can but no worries if not we will make sure that there are some spares. Maybe a blanket incase it drops cold and a hat might help keep the bugs away!
It is our last breathe before we have a break in August so it will be lovely to see you if you can make it.
Matt and the breathe team.
