  • A Place of Sanctuary

    Dear Friends

    Do you have a place of sanctuary, a place to think, a place possibly of solitude, a place simply to be? I hope so. I am convinced that finding a place for ourselves is one of the great secrets of inner contentment and peace in our material rich, time poor society.

    Before we argue that we have no time and that our lives are filled with demands, duties, cares and jobs I would like to suggest that just ten minutes spent in quiet each day will be more than repaid throughout the busy-ness of the day.

    That place could be in your home or out in the wilds. It could be small or large. It might not even be a place. John Wesley’s mother Susanna, who had nineteen children, found a creative way to make time for Quiet Time; in the middle of her busy day, she would sit down in a chair and pull her apron up over her head. When the apron went up, the children knew their mum was praying and reading her Bible and they left her alone.

    Why not experiment? Find a place to be quiet and you never know, there you might find peace, yourself and even God.

    Our village church is open during daylight hours every day of the year because we believe that in the quiet found there, broken hearts can be healed, decisions made, peace experienced and God encountered.

    Try it and tell me what you find. 

    God bless

    Mike Gilbert, Rector of Baslow

    An Invitation

    It is several years since we refurbished the Church Rooms and further work is now required. Prior to relaying the flooring we need to give everywhere a coat of paint. Can you help us with that? If we receive enough volunteers the task should only take a few hours. If you feel so inclined please let either Richard Powell or Bill Campbell know.

    St. Anne's Choirs

    We warmly welcome new members to our Church Choir and to our Young Voices Choir.
