June 2022 Benefice Newsletter and Celtic Evening Prayer

The latest benefice newsletter can now be found here.

Saturday, 28th May, 5pm, Taizé/Celtic Evening Prayer in the Barn, Greenholme, Bewcastle. This is a special service with a difference, held over the weekend of the Forgotten Lands Festival. Seating is on bales of straw or hay, an old church pew, and a few wooden chairs. A 10ft wooden cross hangs from the roof beams at one end. It is informal, part way between outdoors and in. The service is contemplative, the music simple, the words earthy. If you’re not normally a church-goer, come and try it out. Everyone is welcome, especially young people. If you need directions, the postcode is CA6 6PW

    I think that you have got the perfect combination of something which is both outdoors and indoors, and has both the Celtic wonder and silence – grown from life in the small space between the huge skies the harsh rugged land – and the magic of Taizé
    If only the Anglican church could be more ready to leave the traditional liturgy on at least one Sunday in the month and experiment with something like this. Maybe, just maybe, the C of E will do tomorrow what Bewcastle does today…….
