New Programme – New Activities

Standard

S2G Marc-June 2014Here’s the new programme from March for The Cross at Yew Lane; now the building work and new activity room is all finished we’ve been able to start developing new activities such as the new Wednesday morning Space to Grow through Art group which will run alongside the rearranged gardening sessions. Of course we’ve still got our regular sup lunch times on a Wednesday from 12.30pm for anyone who wants to come and share a meal with us – whether you’ve been with during the morning or not.

We’ve still got the regular Quiet Days and evenings which offer that time for you to explore your personal journey in a context of faith and spirituality:

Saturday 29 March

10am – 3pm

Quiet Day: Pause for Lent

Wednesday 16 April

7 for 7.30pm

Urban Reflections:  Feed my people

Wednesday 21st May

7 for 7.30pm

Evening prayer

Saturday 21st June

10am – 3pm

Quiet day: The Heart of Spirituality

Wednesday 23 July

7 for 7.30pm

Urban Reflections:  Rebuilding Jerusalem

Wednesday 20th August

7 for 7.30pm

Evening prayer

Amongst our Quiet Space Programme, we’re also creating a new space for reflection, discussion and prayer called Urban Reflections these sessions will focus on a different issue each time and provide time for a short discussion before some quiet private reflection and prayer on the topic.

And of course the  fortnightly Resting Room returns offering time and space to pray, rest, take time out and just enjoy the peace:

·         Useful for people with stressful lives wanting some ‘time out’

·         Helpful for people who prefer to read and pray in the company of others

Bring your own lunch ingredients with you – toaster, microwave, hob, oven available.

Tea, coffee and biscuits available.

Make yourself at home!

Tree of Life (1)

Standard

Last night saw around fifteen young people from Don Explorers join with Ric Stott and Nick Waterfield from PXI to start work on a street art mural entitled “Tree of Life”. The design is at the back of the building in the kitchen garden at Yew Lane – more work will be done in the coming weeks to complete the art work.

Wishing you a happy Christmas ….

With Christmas getting closer and closer I just wanted to take this time to wish everyone a happy and blessed Christmas – here to help you reflect on the season are some images from the recent PXI Street Art Project which involved work with a long time friend of Cross at Yew Lane, Ric Stott.
