Our next meeting will be on Thursday 15th November, starting 7.30 pm., and will be held in Room 2, Quaker Meeting House, Lancaster. [Please note, this is NOT the date provisionally agreed at our last Faithshare meeting; but is the date on which a suitable room was available at the Quaker Meeting House for us to book for our meeting.]

Our topic will be “Celebrating Faithshare”. It will be an opportunity to reflect upon the topics we have explored during past Faithshare meetings, to explore possible themes for future Faithshare meetings and to consider other activities, events and ways to reach more people in various faith traditions and in the wider community more generally. Bring your ideas and suggestions with you – or if you aren’t able to attend this Faithshare but have some ideas for us to consider, send them to me by email before the 15th November.

This Faithshare meeting will also be an opportunity for us to celebrate with the sharing of food; so please bring vegetarian snacks and non-alcoholic drinks to share.


October Faithshare Meeting `The Sounds of Silence’ Thursday 18th October, starting 7.30 pm Room 2, Quaker Meeting House, Lancaster

This will be the final Faithshare in our `Faith and the Power of Words’ theme that we have been following during the past months. This final topic of `The Sounds of Silence’ will be exploring the role of meditation, silent prayer and reflection, of listening to `the still, small, inner voice’ in our different faith traditions. We shall share our understandings of the power of faith that goes beyond words, beyond sound, and of the role of silence in our own and each others’ faiths.
