Friday Light

The Vestry, where the "Friday Light" group meet.

Held in the chapel vestry twice a month at 6.30pm (see our timetable below and on the home page for exact dates), our popular “Friday Light”  is an informal event, less a service and more of an end-of-week epilogue / discussion group, the content and atmosphere of which  varies from session to session. It can include:

  • Guided thoughts – may support reflection or compassionate thinking
  • Readings – can be about any subject and are offered in a sharing spirit
  • Responsive discussion – provides opportunities for engagement with our
    own thoughts and those of others
  • Small rituals and music – enhance a meeting with meaning

Probably the most common format these days is for that week’s speaker to give a presentation on a particular subject dear to them, followed by a discussion.

Our gatherings can have many aspects: they may often be challenging and innovative and at other times offer serenity. Sometimes they might be silent and peaceful. An overall description is that they are joyful and celebratory. Friday Light is different because it is often fun, memorable and is adapted to people’s needs and encompasses all age groups.

We are always on the lookout for more speakers so please contact us if you are interested in taking part.
