At the outbreak of the Coronavirus the Government were keen to stress the importance of keeping well both physically and mentally. In this 15 minute exercise Revd Tim Moore leads us through a mindfulness practice with some help and guidance on how to stay emotionally well. Tim is a presbyter in Huddersfield and teaches mindfulness as a part of his pioneer work.

  • In this episode, Tim Moore talks to us about contemplative and Centering prayer. He continues to help us with our wellbeing and gives guidance on the power of gratitude.
  • In our third episode, Tim looks at mindfulness and psychological distancing.

Acting in God's LoveChristian Witness in a Multi-Religious World

Our Deputy Chair, Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, has been involved in putting together a new booklet, ‘Acting in God’s Love: Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World’. This practical theological resource uses the document 'Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World: Recommendations for Conduct' produced by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA). It aims to help you gain a practical understanding towards application of the guidelines, provide a wider perspective of the UK context and develop deeper theological reflection on interfaith engagement. 

Copies of the booklet can be downloaded from the Churches Together in Britain & Ireland website.
