To offer a welcoming community and space in which to explore the contemplative and creative riches of Christian spirituality. We like Rowan Williams’s description of spirituality as being ‘the cultivation of a sensitive and rewarding relationship with eternal truth and love.’
We are part of All Saints Church, a living Christian community in Brighton & Hove. We are an inclusive Anglican church, welcoming all.
Our home is a magnificent nineteenth century church building, cathedral like in size and atmosphere. Gothic arches, stained glass windows, carved stone and wood, and an enormous organ: we were built to raise the spirits!
Our spirituality centre also makes use of the smaller more intimate spaces at All Saints, including our Spirit Chapel and informal parish room.
I’m a Deacon in the Church of England and have an MA in Christian spirituality. My hope is that this centre offers a resource to explore the richness, depth and breadth of the Christian spiritual tradition, and will equip us to love and serve the world. I’m also the co-founder of the Centre for Spirituality.
Reverend Kate Lawson
I am a priest in the Church of England. Attending the labyrinth and spirituality sessions has helped me to explore the liminal space I am currently occupying, in transition and on the threshold of the next step in my journey. I host a monthly Quiet Garden in Saltdean.
I’m committed to living my life with more mindfulness; passionate about open-minded, open-hearted Christianity and grateful for the gifts of Buddhism which have enriched my Christian path. I’m on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Spirituality. I’m also the co-founder of the Centre for Spirituality.
