Soul Space

​Soul Space at St Kenneth's         ​

                                                 

Soul Space provides a sacred space, a space to explore, to reflect, to pray, to find peace, stillness and refreshment - it is your time to spend with God and you can come and go as you please. Various prayer installations are set up around the Church to help people engage and reflect on the theme, with music playing and a power point presentation showing images which link with the theme and also a short led reflection.

In our busy hectic lives, Soul Space gives us the chance to 'Be still and know God', to refresh, reflect, renew and relax in God's presence.

​October 2016 Soul Space on Harvest and Giving Thanks

​Our second Soul Space took place on Thursday 13th October at Kennoway Church when we  reflected on the theme of Harvest and giving thanks for God's plentiful provision and bountiful blessings. Around the Church there were various prayer installations set up to help people engage and reflect on the theme including a PowerPoint presentation for people to watch, copies of poetry and prayers for people to read and take away, displays portraying the harvest of land and sea and God’s goodness to us, prayer walls where people could write prayers of thankfulness to God and prayers for our Community asking for a harvest of God’s love to be sown and reaped within the Community. Many people came along throughout the day and appreciated the space in the Church to ‘Be still and know God’, to take time out from our hectic lives and just sit and enjoy the ambient music and prayerful space, to refresh, reflect, renew and relax in God’s presence, giving thanks for God’s goodness to us and considering how we can faithfully respond to His love by offering Him our whole lives in service. There was also tea, coffee and home baking available in the office throughout the day and many folks enjoyed the fellowship and opportunity to chat while having some refreshments.

March 2017 Soul Space on Lent Testings and Triumphs

Our Lent Soul Space took place on Thursday 9th March at Kennoway Church when we reflected on the testings and triumphs of our Lent journey, thinking of our struggles and temptations in wilderness and desert moments of life and how Jesus is always with us, understanding and carrying us through these times. We also reflected on Jesus's agony in Gethsemane and how through Christ's suffering on the cross we are made whole, cleansed, forgiven and reconciled with God.

Many people appreciated the time and space to be still in God's presence and to reflect on their faith journey. It was a very meaningful time particularly sharing communion together at the foot of the cross.

June 2017 Soul Spaces on 'Seasons of Life'

On Thursday 15th June our Soul Space reflected on the theme of 'Seasons of Life'. We looked at the passage from Ecclesiastes 3 and reflected on how God created all life and He is always faithful and with us in every season of our lives and so we need to trust God and learn to embrace whatever season we are in knowing that God is always holding us tenderly in His love and He has a purpose and a plan for each of us. 

Many folks appreciated the peaceful space and opportunity to be still in God's presence, to engage with prayer stations and reflect on the theme while listening to relaxing music. 

September 2017 Soul Space on Psalm 139

On Thursday 28th September our Soul Space reflected on Psalm 139 and how we are created in God's image. We are fearfully and wonderfully made and woven together in God's love, each of us unique and each with a part to play in God's bigger picture.
