Centre for Reflection at
Aston Tirrold

The Centre for Reflection at Aston Tirrold offers a place for people of all ages and different social, religious and personal backgrounds to reflect on their spiritual journey through life.

The Centre runs a programme of workshops, quiet days and talks and is available for a group to make a booking for its own purpose. It is used for retreats, quiet days, talks, workshops, celebrations/parties, meditation, music making, training, away days and meetings.

It is here to be a place of hospitality, of caring and creativity, of non-judgemental acceptance, of exchange in learning and teaching, and of silent retreat and listening to God. Its rural location,  and nearby footpaths provide an opportunity to explore the connection between the outer landscape and our inner spiritual journey.

Saturday 8 September 7.30pm POETRY AND SONG EVENING. Please join us for an evening of light entertainment. If you feel you would like to contribute a poem or song, play the piano or recite some prose, please bring it along with you. Bring and Share Refreshments. Cost: Donation

Saturday 15 September 10 – 4pm as part of the QUIET GARDEN TRUST Rev Josie Midwinter and Joan Impey, together with Rev Keith Green will lead us into Autumn with reflections and quiet time. Cost: £15 including light lunch.

Saturday 22 September 10 – 1pm GATHERING, LANGUAGE AND MYSTERY. There has been a Christian presence in the Astons for well over a thousand years, so there is a rich tradition expressed in three unique churches. We will visit all three and explore different aspects of worship. As Christians we gather together, we develop the language of worship and engage with the mystery of God’s presence in our midst. Meet at the Centre at 10am. Cost: Donation
