A Spirituality for Every Day: The Sermon on the Mount

St Andrew’s Church, The Street, Rushmere St Andrew, Ipswich IP5 1DH

Tuesday 15th August 2017, 10:00

A day led by Bishop Mike

Bishop Mike writes: “One of the greatest gifts of Jesus to us is his Sermon on the Mount - but some of the ways we interpret it can seem like bad news in terms of how high the bar is set or what we are required to do. This day looks at Jesus' teaching on the Sermon on the Mount and how it is wonderfully wise teaching, enabling our spiritual transformation, a transformation rooted in the action of actually following Jesus and his teaching in ways which enable us to begin to take on something of his character. The Sermon on the Mount is not about a new and sterner legalism but pointers to what life can become for devoted disciples and apprentices of Jesus. There will be three talks during the course of the day with plenty of room for silence and reflection.”

This event is free and drinks will be provided.

This is part of the ongoing Diocesan prayer and spirituality initiatives aiming to encourage the priority of prayerfulness at the heart of all we do.

Gravetalk - Ipswich

Whitton Parish Hall, Whitton Church Lane, Ipswich IP1 6LT

Thursday 14th September 2017, 19:00

It’s not easy to think about your own funeral. Talking about death, dying and funerals raises big questions that we need to face at some point, but it’s hard to talk to family and friends.  Come and think about these questions in a café space.  More information can be found here.  To book, click here.


Gather!

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds

Saturday 23rd September 2017, 17:00

Following on from the hugely successful first youth celebration ‘Gather’ event last September 2016. We are pleased to announce that we are now starting to plan Gather 2017 again taking over the whole of the Cathedral!

This event is about young people for young people to gather in celebration and exploration of their growing faith.  Last year’s event attracted over 120 young people and youth leaders, the feedback was fantastic and all really enjoyed the concert performed by The Sense, Youth For Christ band, as well as exploring many creative, fun and inspiring workshops throughout the evening.

This year will be even bigger and better so please save the date and get involved.
