Exploring Spirituality with the Wisdom of Wesley

Something particularly exciting about Pathfinder Church is the ecumenical backstory that continues to shape us. We’re the result of many years of prayer from local churches across different traditions, who continue to support and encourage us to grow as a church for this time and this place.

Our minister, Revd Dr Beth Cope, is an Anglican Priest, but those who are coming together to form Pathfinder Church come from all traditions and from none: together we are pilgrims on a journey, asking questions and exploring the connections we find between everyday life and our spirituality and faith.

In the run up to Easter this year, we are digging into our Methodist heritage, exploring the spiritual practices promoted by John and Charles Wesley… and trying them out for ourselves: praying, exploring and sharing. Why not come and find out more?

We’re picking up these themes Sunday by Sunday. But there are also midweek opportunities to did deeper. Read more on our website, and talk to Beth, Rachel, or Ellie.

More dates for your diary

Before we advertise any wider… who’s around?

We know that many of us have family and friends spread out across the country. Northstowe often empties out during school holidays! So before we commit any further to our special events during Easter holidays, we’d love to get a feel for who is likely to be able to come… and who might help ensure we run safely and well.

Please let us know your availability using this form. (Typical completion time 3 1/2 mins)
