We are a group of churches of various denominations in Beverly, Danvers, Manchester, and Wenham, Massachusetts who want to create opportunties for people in our towns to find God in silence with each other. You do not need to belong to a church to attend our gatherings. All are welcome.
We meet once a month, taking turns to meet in each others' churches. We explore different kinds of silence and chant including contemplative prayer, Taize chant, sacred walking, labrynth, and more.
If you are a local church who would like to host a circle, please contact us.
We meet the third Tuesday of the month from 7:00 - 8:00pm, September - May. Upcoming gatherings are:
September 20, 2016 - First Baptist Church, 221 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA
October 18, 2016 - St. John's Episcopal Church, 705 Hale Street, Beverly, MA
November 15, 2016 - St. Peter's Episcopal Church, 4 Ocean Street, Beverly, MA
December 20, 2016 - TBD
Even if you have never tried silence, meditation, or contemplatation, we invite you to join us. No experience necessary! No judging. No proselytizing.
No matter your spiritual path, you are loved by God. See if these practices might be of help on your journey.
