Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation. Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is ‘Having a Laugh’. Humour has a life-affirming role in our everyday experience. Even in the most unlikely circumstances, it can diffuse tension, restore perspective and connect us with others. Rev Claire Wilson (retired Anglican priest, and self-styled 'free-ranger') will explore humour's vital role across a range of religious and non-religious traditions, showing how it continues to influence our understanding of the world, each other, and ourselves.
