Add to my calendar

This rich and deeply enriching service is currently available live online via our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/boxriverbenefice
This service, sometimes also called Mass or Holy Communion, is the staple bedrock of the church. It is deeply evocative, and draws all present into the sublime mystery of the Lord's Supper. We explore scripture, pray and are caught up in the power of the ritual together, as one body. As we gather around God's Table and hear Christ's words to 'Do this is remembrance of me', we are drawn into a mystery of timeless truth and united with each other in a deeply spiritual way. As we kneel before the Holy Altar we do so with others of all ages, social situations, races, sexualities and nationalities. And we realise that we are all equal before the eyes of our Creator God. This is community as it was designed to be. All are welcome at this service, old and young.

Evening Prayer and Meditation

Add to my calendar

This rich and evocative service includes daily psalms, readings and a chance to spend a few minutes in silent meditation which has been a staple and essential part of regular spiritual discipline since the time of Jesus and before. To be a true disciple we must be willing to look inside of ourselves and let God speak through the silence into the centre of our hearts.
