News St Martin – Talking Points

Tuesday 20 October 2015

Wednesday evenings at St Martin’s are where we build our community, through a simple Eucharist with reflections, discussions, input from members of the community and from groups across St Martin’s.

The music for the evening is led by the Choral Scholars and we gather around the altar together as the first disciples did to share in the Eucharist together. The time in church is followed by a simple soup supper in the Austen Williams Room, No 6 St Martin’s Place, followed by the opportunity to reflect on and explore the bible together. It’s a great way to find focus during a busy week, to be close to God, make friends, pray and explore faith.

The evening starts in church and continues with a simple supper in the Austen Williams Room, followed by small groups.

£2 for supper.  All are welcome.

About Ian Adams and his recent book Unfurling:Ian Adams

‘Ian Adams is one of the most striking, original and fresh voices in contemporary Christian spirituality. The thread that runs through his poems is Ian Adams’ instinct that if our world is to rediscover its harmony and peace, that rediscovery can and must begin within each one of us. Through attention and love we may begin to discover an unfurling from all the fears and anxieties that keep us bound.’
