Christ in Quiet
4th Tuesday in the month, 7.30 - 9.00 p.m.
We live in a world of noise. Everywhere we go, even in our own homes, there is some kind of noise to distract us. From phones to the TV to traffic noise outside, but making time for daily devotion is critical to hearing God.
Noise, whether outside or inside us distracts. If we fail to understand the importance of having a regular, committed quiet time with God, we are not likely to hear His voice…the one that whispers, "This is the way; walk in it" (Isaiah 30:21).
Jesus set the example for us concerning quiet time. He took time to connect with the Father regularly.
These evenings are an opportunity simply to spend some quiet time in the church, away from distractions, in an athmosphere of prayer and contemplation.
The New Thursday Cafe
As from 8th June Box Methodist church will be opening its doors on a Thursday morning at 8.45am. The morning will run in the style of a café by a volunteer team with a £1charge for a cup of coffee or tea and a cookie. There will be an area for preschool children to play.
For several years Box Methodist Church has opened its doors on a Thursday morning between 10 and 12 noon for those wanting a cuppa and a bit of company. Most Thursdays has seen between 15 and 30 people coming through the door. Friendships have been formed through the years and many have found the morning a lifeline especially during tough times.
Now we want to extend the welcome to more of our village community by opening earlier. Mums (and Dads and Grandparents) can pop in and find a few moments in their busy day, to sit down, have a hot drink made for them by one of our volunteer team and get a breather. Being a parent/carer of young children can be exhausting and often there is little time for even a cuppa let alone someone else around to make that drink for you.
Today families are so often fragmented and scattered far and wide. Young parents do not necessarily have their own extended families living close by to help support them. We are hoping that the café will become a place where people can receive that support.
