Learn to meditate at St Anne’s Church.
A 4-part Course in Meditation for Christians.
Sunday evenings 7.30pm 2, 9, 16, 23 June 2019.
The early Church Fathers discovered a method of discerning the word of God by falling deeply still and concentrating on a prayer-phrase or mantra.
The power of a Mantra is to release the Mind and Heart of anxieties and discover an Inner stillness. We have come to know this practice as Meditation.
David Boddy, a former Headmaster, Church Governor of Queen’s Primary School and meditator for over 40 years, offers the St Anne’s community a 4-part introductory course in Meditation for Christians.
Part 1: What is Meditation and how does it work?
Part 2: Meditation and the Scriptures
Part 3: Establishing Meditation and Prayer in daily practice
Part 4: Heart of the Matter – Finding Inner Peace & Happiness
The course will consist of four stand-alone discussion and meditation practice sessions. Participants are not required to attend all sessions. Each session will last approximately 90 minutes.
Please sign up if you are interested in attending

Thank you very much to everyone who completed the survey on our provision for youth, families and young professionals. There has been a great response and I am enjoying looking through them. Thank you, too, to those who took the time to speak to me at one of the coffee drop-ins. The next stage is that I will present the findings to the PCC in May and then Fr Nigel and I will speak to you all in June about how we plan to move forward. Your support and encouragement in this work is invaluable and hugely appreciated – Emily Norman (Assistant to the Incumbent)
