This Sunday we are excited to welcome the wonderful Irish poet and theologian, Pádraig Ó Tuama, as our guest preacher, joining us live from his home in Ireland. Pádraig was until recently the leader of the Corrymeela Community, Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation organisation. A profoundly engaging public speaker, he has worked with groups to explore story, conflict, their relationship with religion and argument, and violence. Our congregation benefitted greatly from reading his book In the Shelter as our common Lenten reading earlier this year.
Our regular Sunday gathering is currently happening online only, but it is not just a streamed telecast. Like our usual service, it is a highly participatory inclusive and healing blend of ancient and modern spiritual practices. For details of how our online liturgies are working and how to participate, see this page.
All welcome, regardless of age, race, religion, capability, sexual identity, or immigration status.
After the service, we would normally share in a light evening meal together, but we haven’t worked out how to serve soup and bread online!
