Bishop Chris Edmondson & Karen Openshaw

We would love you to join us as we spend a weekend exploring the concept of mindfulness. We’ll reflect on God’s mindfulness of us, and the rich Christian heritage of contemplation and mysticism.

There will be times of quiet and meditation. We’ll also ask how we, as church, might work with others to bring healing and wholeness to a hurting post-pandemic Britain. Could mindfulness be a gift for the church that it hasn’t yet unwrapped?

Karen runs a consultancy for those in leadership roles, listening services and ‘introduction to mindfulness’ workshops. Chris has been Chair of the Scargill Movement Council since 2009. They have recently been co-writing ‘Mindfulness as a Mission Gift’, hopefully to be published in the next few months!

If you would like to attend, but the cost of the ticket is a difficulty for you, then contact Phil in confidence about a bursary to help with the cost.
