A Reflection Group for clergy has been meeting every Wednesday morning at 10.30am, and these will continue once a month, and will still be reflective in nature, often on an agreed theme. Lay Readers also have regular online gatherings, organised by Lis Burke.
In addition, a Drop-in for clergy has started every Wednesday morning at 8.30am, lasting for 30 minutes. The Drop-in offers a space for clergy to meet and chat informally, for sharing and support. Some people have said what these sessions mean to them:
‘It’s like meeting colleagues on the stairs or at the kettle where you can just chat, have a joke, or share something that’s bothering you – it’s simply our space and time.’ Elaine
It has been a sacrosanct, sacred and practical commitment to collegiality with clergy. I believe we have a support and consultation space among friends now. Kathy Barrable
I’m admittedly a late arrival, but this is a chance to touch base in an informal setting, drink coffee, and see that we’re all still out there! A non-pressurised environment in which to share many things, or to just ‘be’. Jo
If any clergy would like to take part any Wednesday, they would be very welcome. The zoom invitation is sent out each week and all are welcome to join whenever they can.
