Light Peace Thanksgiving [ for 45 minutes every 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month ]
Sanctuary@6 is a contemporary service drawing upon the ancient traditions of the Christian Church. It is quiet and meditative allowing space for reflection and prayer. Through simple music, visual media, candle light and fragrant incense, we come close to God in the sharing of the bread and wine.
LIGHT - the service begins with the lighting of the lamps of evening, surrounding us in candle light, symbolising the light of God in Jesus Christ, protecting us during the night ahead.
PEACE - in quiet reflection we offer to God our prayers of sorrow, hope and joy, asking for His grace, mercy & inspiration. Through contemplative film and music, we hear and digest the word of God from scripture.
THANKSGIVING - with reverent praise, we rejoice to be in God's presence by sharing in the sacrament of bread and wine; the heavenly banquet.
A DALES PRAYER
May the Father's grace abound in you as the flowing water of the beck.
May the Son's love and hope invigorate you as the rising slopes of fell and dale.
May the Spirit's companionship be with you as the glory of the golden meadows.
