Updates from Whirlow

Exploring Traditions series

The first of our Exploring Traditions series begin on 1st March with Exploring New Monasticism

This first evening will be led by members of Contemplative Fire North, some of whom are regulars at Whirlow. Contemplative Fire was founded by Philip Roderick, our previous chaplain, and CF North use the Chapel of the Holy Spirit on a regular basis. So there are many reasons to look forward to this event.

Each evening we shall explore a different Christian tradition by hearing from those from that tradition. There will also be an opportunity to reflect and experience prayer in that particular tradition/spirituality.

Other events in the series are as follows:

April 6th: Exploring the Benedictine Tradition led by members  of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield

May 16th : Exploring The Wesleyan Tradition led by Joy Adams, Methodist Minister & Chaplain to Whirlow Spirituality Centre at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit

June 13th : Exploring Quakerism led by Linda Hoy, Sheffield Central Quaker Meeting

July 6th : Exploring Orthodoxy led by Father Edwin Hunt, parish Priest of the Parish of St Cuthbert; Sheffield, Scunthorpe & Chesterfield
