Good Friday Tranquility at St Mary’s

Come and enjoy the tranquility of St Mary’s Church.
stained windows
Away from the noise we will be creating prayers using beautiful art work from Lindisfarne Scriptorium or you can create your own.
There are 10 blank designs which contain a prayer or a blessing. The sheets range in complexity of design. You can add as much or as little colour as you like.
The act of adding colour focuses the mind on the words of the prayer or blessing. Bring your own colours/paints or use our colouring pencils.
Not feeling arty? You can light candles for loved ones or anything on your mind that you want to give to God. If want you us to pray for you there will be prayer slips which we will collect in confidence. These prayers will be given to our prayer team.
You can come and just take time out to be still. It’s a drop-in event.
This is a quiet time. We ask for mobiles set to silent mode or switched off please.
