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.

The Centre for Reflection is associated with and located at Aston Tirrold URC (United Reformed Church)  and is open for use by people of other churches and indeed other denominations, other religions or any individual or group seeking the opportunity for reflection.

SATURDAY 7 OCTOBER 2.30pm  Paula Hollingsworth will introduce her book “THE SPIRITUALITY OF JANE AUSTEN”. Drawing on the author’s life story, her letters, friendships and books, Paula explores Austen’s understated but strong faith and the effect it had on both her life and writing. Come and enjoy a cup of tea and slice of cake. No booking required. Cost: Donation
