Danesfield School opens new ‘Sanctuary’ Prayer Room

Danesfield School opens new ‘Sanctuary’ Prayer Room

Posted by John on November 2nd 2016

Danesfield Middle School in Williton opened a dedicated Prayer Room (aptly named The Sanctuary) in the school in September, and a few weeks ago the School Council and members of staff were joined by the Bishop of Taunton and local church leaders for the official opening. It was a great day! The finished prayer space looks and feels amazing, and has been well used by students and staff during the first half of the autumn term. As a church we see supporting our local schools as a priority and we also firmly believe in creating space for prayer, and so to be involved in helping Danesfield School set this up was a real privilege. You can read more about The Sanctuary @ Danesfield School on the Diocese of Bath & Wells website here... http://www.bathandwells.org.uk/2016/10/bishop-ruth-opens-school-prayer-space/ Here at The Sanctuary building in Watchet we also have a dedicated Prayer Room. Like the one in the school it’s designed to be a quiet place that anyone can use—whether you just want a few minutes quiet to gather your thoughts, some time alone to pray or space to get creative. Our prayer is that both Prayer Rooms are place where people of all ages can pause and take a deep breath in the busyness of life. We also pray it’s a place where people of all ages & backgrounds can find faith, hope, encouragement & inspiration for life.

What next, Lord? Ep5 - Gospel & Culture

Posted by Carl Smethurst on November 5th 2015

Series of 5 short videos designed to help churches reflect on where they are at and what God might have for their future. In this episode we consider how our contemporary culture has changed from that in which the church we have inherited was formed. We also think about the various sub-cultures in our society identifying those we are reaching with the gospel and those we presently are not. READ Acts 17:16–23.

What next, Lord? Ep 4 - Spirituality for Mission

Posted by Carl Smethurst on November 5th 2015

In this episode we consider what are the ‘marks’ of those who are ‘sent’ with the message of Jesus drawing inspiration from those sent out by Jesus and those who have been 'missionary disciples' from the Christian tradition. READ Matt 9:35-10:10.

What next, Lord? Ep 3 - Mission Context and Mixed Economy

Posted by Carl Smethurst on November 5th 2015

Series of 5 short videos designed to help churches reflect on where they are at and what God might have for their future. In this episode we consider how most of the church traditions we have inherited are not that different in their practices and ask the question, "Should we have a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to church or should there be different expressions of church to reach and disciple those in different contexts to our own?" READ Acts 15:1-4 & Galatians 2:7-9.
