Beginners’ Course in ‘Heart Meditation’
Tuesday 22nd January 2019, 6.30-7.30pm

Essex Church is hosting this course, run by an external group, which members of the congregation might be interested in: ‘Using ancient rhythms, played on a frame drum, the classes will help you focus on your heart beat, enabling you to start on a journey of self-discovery, to enable your full potential’. First class is free, thereafter donations welcome. To find out about this Gnostic meditation form visit or email

Sunday Conversation
Sunday 27th January 2019, 12.45-2.00pm

A conversation with a difference in January as we’ll be taking part in the RSPB’s Big Garden BirdWatch at the same time. Bring your binoculars if you have them, your lunch and your ideas about our January theme of ‘choices and decisions’ and let’s see how many birds we spot in the church garden. This national project takes place between the 26th and 28th January and they are asking people to register from December 12th. You’ll be sent a form on which to record how many birds you spot over the course of one hour. They use the results to assess the well-being of bird populations.
