"What the world needs now is love" .Where is love ? How do we find it ? By taking time to be still with God.Whether you call it meditation, loving silence, silent prayer or sitting in the Light, there has been a long tradition of meditation in Christianity and science also now can testify to the benefit of taking time to sit in silence , to simply be.Using the beautiful historic Church of All Saints In Earls Barton as a place of peace, you are invited to join us there, each Friday morning to sit in "Loving Silence" for 30 minutes. Everyone and anyone is welcome, whether you are a person of faith or none, or a beginner in meditation.Please arrive at 9.45am to commence the silence/mediation at 10.00 am . We will finish at 10.30am.
