Advent Quiet Space

Is the prospect of Christmas already driving you nuts? Are you already wondering how you will find the time, the energy and the money for Christmas? Do you sometimes wish you could ‘give it a miss’? Me too, and I’m the Vicar!


If the prospect of Christmas is already a source of anxiety for you then let me tell you about something I am proposing to do during ‘Advent’, the time traditionally spent ‘waiting’ for the arrival of Christmas, the birth of Jesus.


I am keeping Thursday evenings free during Advent, and I won’t be using them to go Christmas shopping! Instead, from 7.30pm until 8.30pm, I plan to sit in Whimple Church, enjoy some quiet space in the sacred surroundings of this beautiful village church and simply wait. Would you like to join me?  Nothing will be expected of you other than to sit quietly. We might light some candles; we might listen to the odd piece of soft music; we might hear a short poem or a verse or two from the Bible. But mostly, we’ll be quiet. And, in doing so, while the world goes mad around us, my hope is that we’ll recover a sense of perspective, come home to ourselves and find some joy and peace in simply ‘being’ and waiting.


Thursdays in Advent:

5th, 12th and 19th December 2018

7.30pm in Whimple Church
