Gleaners Group Gathering

As a result of our trip to Lee Abbey, a group of us have been meeting every few weeks on a Sunday evening to pray, look at Biblical texts and themes and worship God. We do this in a relaxed, friendly and flexible way and often use modern music and worship songs to help our reflection. We aim to be ‘real’ in our discussions and relate our faith to our lives and the world around us. Over the months we have used images of journey, prayer beads evening, prayer walks, and informal communion led by Michael Hayes. Meeting in places across the benefice.

We have called ourselves the Gleaners, as at the first meeting we looked at the book of Ruth and were struck by that image of Ruth ‘gleaning’ in Boaz’s field. Picking up the grain to feed herself and her family. The name Gleaners stuck.

Due to the Advent Night Prayers, there will be no meeting of the Gleaners group in December. We will however meet on Sunday 7th January 2018 and join in worship led by our group who are training to be lay worship assistants. The evening will be in Creech St Michael at the Church Meeting Room and the focus is seasonal, picking up on the Magi and the bringing of gifts. All are very welcome.

If you would like to come along do let me know, so I have an idea of numbers.
