Deep Talk 2019

Deep Talk is an invitation to a communal conversation about and engagement with our life journey.

Founding stories from scriptures and other sources are brought to life and then retold from different vantage points. It can give courage and freedom to participants, who re-imagine their own story in a safe group context.

The Divine Dance Book Group

The Divine Dance Book Group

What - or who? - is God? An angry moral scorekeeper? A supernatural Santa for those who do what’s right? A fiction? An irrelevance?

Explore this and other fundamental questions at Whirlow Spirituality Centre’s summer book group, reading The Divine Dance,by Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell).

The writers think about God in a different way that can cut through conflicting perspectives. They speak of the Divine as a community; as a dance.

The Great Spiritual Migration Book Group

“The Christian story, from Genesis until now, is fundamentally about people on the move - outgrowing old, broken religious systems and embracing new, more redemptive ways of life. It’s time to move again."

In The Great Spiritual Migration, Brian McLaren argues that Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift. 

We will study his book in the hope of finding inspiration, provocation, encouragement and a spur to good discussion.

An exhibition of paintings by Robert Wright - 2 - 15 Nov

With an intense use of colour, in fifteen strikingly silent abstract paintings, Robert explores the solitude and silence of Merton’s dark path of contemplation.

He hopes the paintings will open viewers' eyes to another world, beyond words, full of deeper, richer meaning - "charged with the grandeur of God” (G.M. Hopkins)

The paintings will be hung in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit for a fortnight. Please call 0114 2 353704 to arrange a time to pop in
