Space to think

Life is complicated, and faith isn’t about making it less complicated, but living with greater wisdom in the midst of uncertainty.

We offer space for reflection and discussion, for ponderers and wonderers. Whether you’re into knotty philosophical debate, prefer discussing your faith and the bible in small groups, or are a teenager wanting to explore who you are and what you might do with your life there is a thinking space to welcome you.

Below are some of the thinking spaces you can be part of in Redlands Parish Church.

Our next House Groups will run during Lent.

Francis and Hilary Jakeman invite you to join them on Tuesday mornings throughout Lent for the ‘Saying Yes to Life’ Lent course, which has been created by the Arch Bishop of Canterbury in response to the Climate Emergency. They will be reflecting on the Genesis narrative on creation. If you are intgerested please speak to Hilary or Francis.

Receiving Christ is an evening Lent course run by Shelagh and Alan Tonkyn on Monday evenings at 8pm. It will be based on the York Course,’Receiving Christ in 5 different ways’ and will provide opportunities to talk and reflect on the different ways we can learn to be disciples of Christ.

This year our Parish Weekend returns to Bournemouth and the lovely Marsham Court Hotel from Friday 27th March until Sunday 29th March. The theme of this years weekend is ‘I the Lord of Sea and Sky’ and will be a time for us to reflect on God’s wonderful creation. This weekend will offer us an opportunity to not only connect to the beauty of creation but also it’s fragility, through prayer, worship and workshops.

As well spending time in fellowship as a church community, there will also be lots of free time to explore Bournemouth and enjoy the beautiful seafront a stones throw from the hotel. On the Saturday evening there will also be a quiz for us to have a bit of fun together. On Sunday there will be a morning Eucharist and Sunday lunch will be served in the hotel before we depart.
