On Saturday 20th October Dr Martin Garsed is bringing his portable prayer labyrinth to All Saints’ Church.
This ancient symbolic pattern has been used by many faiths and in Christian worship and liturgy, particularly in the medieval period. In more recent centuries it has been used far less but over the last twenty years or so there has been a resurgence of interest and many new labyrinths have been built. The most important labyrinth to have survived from the medieval period can be seen in Chartres Cathedral in France. There is also one in Ely Cathedral.
An attendance list is now available in church. Please add your name if you would like to join us so that I know how many people to expect. Those who come will learn something about this ancient practice and then have the chance to experience walking prayerfully the path of the labyrinth for themselves.
