Lent 2019 – Quartz Activities

This year, in the run up to Easter, Quartz will be giving up Sunday afternoons in Lent for three creative activities on each Sunday.

#SensingSpirituality walk,
‘Reading’ our environment to search out and examine the sensations which make us more than just our physical elements.

Our route will take us through the diversity of Dumfries, both urban and natural. Each person will have a notebook and there will be stops for meditation and discussion. We will meet at St John’s at 14.00  and then walk on from there. Please dress for the weather!

#MysteryOfGod Discussion Group,
Using the Churches together in Britain and Ireland resources https://ctbi.org.uk/lent/
At 1 James Avenue

#MarysChoice meals
Wind up the day by cooking, or choosing to rest in the lap of God and listen. We will then eat together at Kate and Simon’s house, 1 James Avenue.

More information can be found in St Johns building, or on the Quartz at St Johns Dumfries Facebook page

Every service held in St Johns involves the use of artistic expression spanning thousands of years of Church history. Some of the events we run however specifically seek to experiment with new forms of artistic expression and to embody the tradition we have received to express it in fresh and creative ways.

Examples of this have been using the whole building (rather than just the sanctuary) for worship, changing the seating arrangement and sit in a circle with the communion table at the center, collaboratively working on banners seeking out you tube clips and popular music and, well many more examples can be found on this page.
