gatherings

Of course the life of the community is more than just its ‘official’ gatherings, nevertheless here are the ways we gather ‘publicly’ with an explanation of each…

Sundays

We gather at 5pm on Sunday (once a cycle we have the meditative gathering at the later time of 8pm) for our Eucharist (or Holy Communion). Our Sunday gatherings focus on a cycle theme (click here for information about the current cycle). Each gathering in a cycle is a little different. There’s a meditative gathering, a guest speaker, a discussion based service, an ‘open-source’ service (where people bring contributions), a children’s service, and another service with a speaker from within the Home community.

Expect some prayers, chants, songs (sometimes played live, sometimes using various pieces of electronica), readings, and other creative rituals. We always have communion at each gathering.

The Sunday gathering lasts around an hour and a quarter.

 

Monthly : Community brunch

Once a month we gather together to share food and talk. These are important times to be together . A  good way into getting more involved in the Home community is to come along to the meals. Don’t wait to be asked! The brunches are open to any who would like to come.

 

Additionally….

Every now and then we also have ‘special’ gatherings, usually at important times during the annual cycle of the church year – Christmas, Holy Week & Easter, Harvest etc.
