‘GOOD SHEPHERD AFTER HOURS’
EXPLORING SACRED SPACE ON SATURDAY

The 4 (or 5) Saturdays in each month in order, follow the same pattern:
- a traditional liturgy
- a contemplation through meditation and music
- a meal
- make a suggestion?
Exploring sacred repetition (first Saturday of each month)
The traditional Anglican service of Evensong asks that “we, who are wearied by the changes and chances of this fleeting world, may rest on [God’s] eternal changelessness”. Take time to wonder onthis fleeting world and Cosmic changelessness in a gentle, reflective service based on Evensong
Exploring sacred silence (second Saturday of each month)
Find sacred space in silence using:
- Meditation-guides available in the church;
- Meditative material you might bring with you;
- Individual prayer;
- Exploration of church and garden; or
