Wilderness: Journeying Out .... Shhhh at the Cathedral

  • Sheffield Cathedral Church Street Sheffield, England, S1 United Kingdom (map)

Wilderness is a two part event taken place at Sheffield Cathedral and focused on the season of Lent.

Lent remembers the journey of Jesus out into the desert and conjures up themes of loss, sacrifice, mourning and also of hope and of purpose. We’re partnering with the Cathedral to run two events alongside the Tuesday Evening Gathering at the Cathedral.

On 12th March we’ll look at Wilderness: Journeying Out.

How do we make sense of loss in our lives? What place do we give to those things, people or places no longer with us? How do we find hope in journeying out to the wilderness.

In the beautiful setting of Sheffield Cathedral we’ll create installations and activities around the building which enable you to engage with this theme in a creative and thoughtful way.

They’ll also be candles and beautiful lighting and ambient music to create a chilled and welcoming mood.

Wilderness opens at 5pm to make use of the stations around the building. Pop in for 5 minutes or stay for an hour. It’s up to you.

The at 7.30pm they’ll be a short reflective gathering which draws together the themes of the evening and invites participants to meditate, reflect and be inspired in a communal setting.

This evening is aimed at anyone regardless of background or experience. Its open to all perspectives and beliefs and provides a simple and welcoming environment to think about life and its meaning.

We’d love to see you there.

This is the first of two evenings, the second of which is on 26 March. See our events pages for details.

This evening will be inclusive to everyone and be particularly relevant for people interested in spirituality but won’t feel religious in language or tone. Expect some art installations, poetry and prose, ambient music, visuals and creative ways to engage with your spiritual side.
