Fulfilment found in a calling

It is with great sadness that we record the passing of our great friend and supporter, Jill Spracklen, on Tuesday 19 March 2019. A few days earlier, on Sunday 10 March at Café Church, Jill had introduced Martin Holst, speaking about the Tolpuddle Martyrs. Jill had written this article about her family’s link to the Martyrs and we feel it fitting that it be included here. Pivot will include a Tribute to Jill in the next edition.      See full story...

Fulfilling worship

A clearly identified part of Broadstone Methodist Church's mission is to include children and families in our Sunday worship. We currently have Café style Worship, Breakfast Church and our traditional Morning Services with children fully included. Karen Greene, Anne Le Poidevin and Joan Jackson share some thoughts on our children-focused worship      See full story...

Fulfilling a commitment

In my last Pivot article for Knit and Natter I mentioned my up-coming challenge of taking part in the Big Sleep Easy 2018, organised by Bournemouth YMCA. Back in the summer of 2018 Wendy from Lesley Shand Funeral Directors, asked our Knit and Natter group to help make about one hundred hats and scarves, that the Douch Family Funeral Group were going to pass on to Bournemouth YMCA. These would be used by volunteers who were going to sleep outside in a cardboard box to raise awareness and money for the homeless and rough sleepers.      See full story...

Prayer Walks

The purpose of Prayer Walks is to give time for meditation and reflection and they have been part of the Christian tradition for many centuries. Walks can be done alone or in groups and can take a number of forms. The most familiar will probably be a pilgrimage but any time spent seeking escape from the everyday pressures of life in walking has to be good. As you walk you can spend dedicated time in prayerful consideration of all that surrounds you, your life, your family and friends, your community and the wider world. Within the environment in which you walk there will be a multitude of stimuli to provide focus – the beauty of the world, great architecture, the joys and challenges of life, and so on.      See full story...
