Easter 2014 Easter Labyrinth
Tuesday 15th April – Thursday 17th April
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that represents wholeness. It looks like a maze but it is not. Unlike a maze a labyrinth has no dead ends. You cannot get lost - you just follow the path to the centre and out again. You walk the labyrinth to learn its lessons. It is designed to help people to come apart from the hassles of everyday and draw close to God. Despite the disruption due to renovations in the main hall we still plan to have Easter Labyrinth although it will be on a smaller scale than last year. It will be set out in the coffee lounge and will consist of various prayer stations that take us through significant events in the life of Christ that took place on various mountains, embracing the cross and the challenge from a Galilean hillside to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. In each area there will be plenty of ideas of what you can do to make this a helpful experience. At the end of the labyrinth, if you don’t want to rush away you can use the quiet room to just sit and be still. The Labyrinth will be open in the mornings from Tuesday- Thursday of Holy Week from 10.00am-12.30pm in our community hall. Prayer Day
On Wednesday the hall will be open from 9am – 9pm for a Prayer Day. As well as opportunity to use the labyrinth and pray individually the day will be interspersed with 30 minute sessions shared prayer at 10.00am, 12noon and 7.30pm. Good Friday
A Good Friday meditation will take place at 6.pm in the main hall provided that the decorating is complete. If this is not possible this will take place in the Community Room downstairs. The theme for the evening is “Written in Red.” A final opportunity to visit the Labyrinth can be taken before or after this event. Easter Sunday
Join together for a joyful celebration of the Risen Christ at 10.30 am with the theme Colours of Dawn. Again we hope to be able to use the main hall for this.
