190210 breathe love

Just to let you know its the February breathe is this coming Sunday and it would be lovely to see you if you can make it.

Our theme for reflection this month is ‘Love’. With Valentine’s Day next week we thought it would be good to explore the nature of love in all its complexity beyond the roses, chocolates, heart cards.

We will journey together, finding a space of stillness and stopping in a busy world, using images and video, silence and chants, readings from the bible and ritual.

breathe begins at 7.30pm in the hall at St Ives Methodist church and it last about an hour and there are drinks and some cake at the end if you can stay. We understand if you have to get straight off to other commitments.

Please be in touch if you have any questions and hopefully see you soon.

190113 breathe pineHappy New Year everyone.

After a busy time of year, we would love to welcome you to breathe this coming Sunday.

Our theme this month is ‘pine’. We will use the evergreen nature of these trees to reflect on the unchanging nature of God with us in all time and places, good, band and unlikely.

The time will be spent in silence and stillness, simple songs and ritual, candles and video, images and readings from the bible.

It all begins at 7.30 in the church hall and will last about an hour. There will be tea and cake afterward if you can join us but understand that you may need to head off quickly at the end.

Hope to see you but if not have a great time wherever you are!

2018 St Ives Meths Christmas Service

We love Advent and Christmas at St Ives Methodist church. Not just because it is the moment that God tells the world in a tiny baby that he loves every person in every time. It is a wonderful time to gather and celebrate and be a community together.

We would love it if you can join us for one or all of the services this Christmas.

If you need any additional information or we can help you in any way then please email info@simc.co.uk

181209 watch breathe flyer

 

It is breathe is Sunday and if you are anything like us you could do with the space to be still and reflect a little before the busyness of this time of year really gets going.

In this advent season, traditionally a time of preparation and anticipation our theme is ‘watch’. We will turn our gaze inwards and look for the things that shape us and look to the future for what God might be calling us to.

There will be spaces of silence, rituals for reflection, videos and chants, stillness and readings from scripture.

It will last about an hour and we would love it if you could stay for refreshments afterward if you can, but we understand if you need to get off home.

Any questions the be in touch.

Matt and the breathe team.

It is breathe this weekend. It would be great if you could join us as we seek out a bit of stillness and space to reflect.

As we connect with remembering of 100 years since the end of World War One we will explore what peace means in today’s world. We will use image and story, ritual and candles, music and silence. You will be welcome to take part in what is prepared or simply use the space to contemplate what is on your mind.

We begin at 7.30pm and meet in the hall at the back of the church (so please use the side entrance). It normally lasts around an hour and there is drinks and cake at the end if you are able stay.

If you have any questions then please get in touch.

There will be plenty of tea, coffee, pastries and fruit from 10am but don’t worry if you are running late, you won’t be the only one and there will still be plenty of coffee left. The service starts at 10.30am and the kids’ corner will be full of fun things for little people to do.

The tables will have lots of activities to share in, people to chat with, songs to sing (if you fancy it) and moments to be still. And this month we have pumpkins but you will have to come along to find out why!

So if you can make it we would love to see you but if not have a great time wherever you are.

If we can help please feel free to contact us.

181014 pause breathe flyer

We are delighted to say that it is breathe this Sunday and as always we would love to see you!

‘Pause’ will be our word for reflection and contemplation this month as we seek to stop for a moment and appreciate the beauty of the world. This week has been blessed with blue skies, bright sunshine and the changing colours of autumn leaves, things so easily missed in our busyness.

Our time together will involve silence and gentle music,  image and object, film and readings that will guide us to place to where we can pause. As always breathe lasts around an hour, and afterwards, there is tea and coffee and maybe even cake. We would love it if you can stay but understand that you may need to get home straight away.

It begins at 7.30pm and takes place in the hall of St Ives Methodist Church (so use the side entrance to the church to get in).

We hope to see you, but if not have a great time wherever you are. If we can help please be in touch.

Cafe Church (2)

It is our first cafe church service since the summer break this Sunday. We would love to see you, make you a coffee and have a good catch up.

As ever, the service will be full of plenty of things to do, good conversation with familiar and new faces, songs to sing (if you fancy it), Sunday papers to read, activities around the tables, a few reflections on faith. Added to all the usual things we have the celebration that Phase one and two of Project 200 are completed. There will be the switch on of our new heating system and more importantly an opportunity to thank all those who have played a part in making it happen.

It all begins at 10.30am with the drinks and pastries served from 10am. If you are running late don’t worry the coffee will still be there and you probably won’t be the last person!

If we can help in any way let us know and if you can be with us then have a great time wherever you are!

Take care,

Matt and the cafe team

180909 invitation breathe flyer

After a break in August breathe is back this coming Sunday. We would love to see you and hear all about your summer adventures!

The theme this month is ‘invitation’ and will be a time to explore the offer of God to find life in the world, beauty in the midst of struggle and joy when what faces us is hard. Our time together will be the usual mix of image and video, stillness and silence, contemplation and reflection, simple music and ritual.

It all begins at 7.30pm and if you haven’t been before it all happens in the hall at the back of the church so please come in by the side door.

It lasts about an hour give or take a few minutes and if you have time for some cake and a cuppa after then we would love it if you can stay. But we understand you may have to get.

Hope to see you but if not no worries we hope you have a lovely time wherever you are!
