Autumn talks on Taize and on money at Hethel Church
The “Summer of Spirituality” at All Saints Church in Hethel moves into autumn with two very different events – a Taizé evening and a talk on “God and Money”.
On Saturday September 21 at 7.30pm, Spirituality, Community and Reconciliation celebrates the work of Taizé, pictured above. Come and let your cares be soothed by the God of 'shalom' – peace and harmony.
The Taizé community in central France was formed during the Second World War. Since then it has welcomed hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who have sought peace, healing and reconciliation through prayer and a very beautiful form of worship. Taizé music is simple but profound, characterised by chants that are easy to learn but with rich harmonies which evolve and grow.
Peter Nicholls, churchwarden at Hethel Church said “Mulbarton's creative and wonderfully musical Rachel Burchell will lead this evening. We will learn a bit about Taizé through their 15-minute "Life at Taizé" video, learn some simple songs and take a refreshment break before relaxing into an act of worship full of candles, music, silence and peace.”
On Saturday October 19 at 7.30pm, Rev Canon Edward Carter, Vicar of St Peter Mancroft in Norwich, will talk about God and Money.
Rev Carter was Canon Theologian at Chelmsford Cathedral, and before ordination he worked for small companies and ran his own business. Since 2010 he has been a Trustee of the Church of England’s CBF Funds, which has around £2bn of church money under investment. He also serves on the Ethical Investment Advisory Group of the Church of England.
Peter says “Being a spiritual person has very 'earthy' consequences. It will matter to you how you use your cash! (Jesus, by the way, had more to say about money than many other things.) So we thought it might be good to get Edward Carter to talk to us about money!”
Hethel Church is about a mile south of Mulbarton; the postcode is NR14 8HE.
