Encounter provides an opportunity to gather together in an environment where faith & fellowship can be shared & it’s a great opportunity to share God’s love in community. People can chat, listen, drink coffee, sing songs, discuss & pray together as a community.

Encounter is a place of Christian exploration & worship, whether you’ve never heard of Jesus before, or whether you’ve attended churches for years. We hope you will find at Encounter, a safe place where you can meet others on the journey of faith.

Bring your laughter, bring your questions, bring your faith, bring your doubt, & all in the hope that we might ENCOUNTER God afresh.

Thursday

Julian Meeting - Contemplative Prayer

Every Third, Last Thursday at 2 p.m. for 45m

11 Maisterson Court, Nantwich
CW5 5TZ

Add to my calendar

St Mary’s hosts an interdenominational Julian Meeting for contemplative, silent prayer. Contemplative prayer, or Christian meditation, has been part of the christian experience from the beginning. Jesus spent whole nights alone in prayer. The Desert Fathers and our own Celtic hermits sought places to be alone with God. But for some centuries the Christian churches neglected this most basic form of prayer; it became usual only in monastic communities.

In the 1970’s prayer meetings began to continue this tradition and took their name from Julian of Norwich, a 14th century anchorite.

If you are interested just come along. If you like to make contact beforehand call in the Parish Office, ring 01270 625268 or email [email protected]

A great tradition of music has built up over many years at St Mary’s and there are now nearly 40 singers in the church choir. We have recently been delighted to admit 8 junior choristers from [email protected] Mary’s.

The choir helps to lead worship at the 10.45am and 6.00pm services as well as taking part in several services of celebration throughout the year for the major Christian festivals. We also sing choral evensong on the 4th Sunday of each month at 6.00pm.

We are supported by Simon Russell, our splendid organist as well as Jonathan Layfield our deputy organist.

If you are interested in joining this enthusiastic, expanding group, please contact the Musical Director, Alison Phillips, on 01270 625074.
