Sacred Space on the Beach

Thursday, 15 May, 2014

Fresh expressions in Scarborough Deanery are preparing for the summer 2014 season of Sacred Space on the Beach.

Over a few weekends during the summer months, people are invited to light a candle on the beach in memory of a loved one, to give thanks, or simply to contemplate and find peace for a few moments. Lighting a candle is free. People of all ages often write names of loved ones, hopes and prayers in the sand by their lantern.

Dates for Sacred Space's 2014 sessions are 12th, 13th, 21st, 26th and 27th July, and 9th, 10th and 23rd August. They take place from 8pm on Filey Beach, just below the cobble landing on the south side.

In addition, Healing on the Beach meets every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month from 2pm-3.30pm, at North Bay near the Sands development in Scarborough. Healing on the Streets meets every 2nd Saturday from 12–1.30pm in the town's Alma Square.

Fresh expressions' Pioneer Minister for Scarborough Deanery is Rev Sam Foster. Sam has been in post since October 2008 and her role is to equip, enable and resource people, both lay and ordained, to be involved in mission across Scarborough and Filey.

Also on the team is Shena Moray, a Church Army officer working with spirituality and the arts. She provides and facilitates space to explore God's love through creativity.

For those who want to discover more about what it means to be a disciple of Christ, The Hub meets every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm. Hub groups explore contemporary issues and faith and, as one hub regular commented,

My faith has grown since I've been a member due to learning from friends who are happy to share stories and life experiences.
