In 2021, we will be studying Rowan Williams’ book ‘Candles in the Dark’. This powerful and timely book brings together 26 weekly Christian meditations originally posted online from March to September 2020, during lockdown in the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, for the congregation of Bp Rowan’s local parish church. We will find ‘Candles in the Dark’ a book of insight and comfort as we journey through Lent this year.

‘Candles in the Dark’ is now available at the Cathedral Shop for $20.

In every moment, every encounter, in times of boredom, anger and anxiety, Jesus is with us, offering himself to us. 
– Rowan Williams

Ignatian Reflection on Scripture and our Daily Life

3rd Monday of the Month at 10.00am in the Cynthia Poulton Hall, starting in April 2021

Led by The Rev’d Canon Jenny Wilson

Ignatian Contemplation is prayer with Scripture. It is meeting God through story. The prayer develops as you “live into” a Scripture story with all your senses and imagination. You let the Spirit guide the prayer – you don’t force anything to happen – you le it happen to you, within you, around you.

We will meet at 10.00am in the Cynthia Poulton Hall to Pray the Examen (a review of the day), spend time with a Psalm, and pray using our imagination with a Gospel passage. 

On the 3rd Monday of each month
in April, May, June, July, August, October & November 2021

Season of Creation

Mondays at 10.00am in the Cynthia Poulton Hall

Led by The Rev’d Canon Jenny Wilson

On each Monday during September we will meet to spend time reflecting on the Godly imperative to care for creation. We will reflect on scripture, on passages from Pope Francis’ Laudato Si, we will take a reflective walk in nature, and we will explore practical ways for creation care. 

Our insistence that each human being is an image of God should not make us overlook the fact that each creature has its own purpose. None is superfluous. The entire material world speaks of God’s love, his boundless affection for us. Soil, water, mountains: everything is, as it were, a caress of God. 
– Pope Francis, Laudato Si
