We are very pleased to be able to announce that there will be a Compline service on Sundays at 6pm SLT beginning this Sunday, 6 February. The service will be held in the Meditation Chapel which is south of the Cathedral. Denise Difference, one of our long standing community members is going to lead the service. She has been working with Helene Milena and Able Shepherd in preparation for beginning this ministry among us. The Leadership Team will continue to support Denise over the coming weeks as she leads. We are very excited about this development on Epiphany Island, as is Denise.
For those who are unfamiliar with Compline, it was the last service of the day in monasteries. It offers an opportunity to remind ourselves of God’s presence with us through the night, of his love for us which has sustained us through the day and is new every morning. Darkness can be a time of challenge or fear; Compline reassures us that we rest in the arms of God as we allow ourselves to slip into our time of rest. There is also the chance to pray for ourselves and others, to place those concerns at the foot of the cross and leave them there, in the safe keeping of One far more capable of dealing with them than we are. We hope that this service will be a blessing to many.
