Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
In this glorious Easter season, rejoicing in new life and new hope, we are also rejoicing in a number of new beginnings at the London Centre for Spiritual Direction! You will have noticed already the soft launch of our new name which, of course, expresses what we’ve always been focused on. With the new name goes a new look; I hope you’ll agree that the logo not only has a fresh and clean feel to it, but the imaginative use of the labyrinth theme says something important about us.
The most obvious new beginning is, though, our website! We are all very excited about this as it really is the front door to the Centre. I hope you’ll enjoy looking around and trust that you will find it much more user-friendly than the previous one. The Community of Spiritual Directors directory is now interactive and course information should be easier to access. You will find clear tabs for the key areas of our work and ministry, with helpful links to many of our partners.
It has been really good to welcome Alison Christian to the Centre team. Her experience both at Launde Abbey and as a parish priest in London have brought yet more richness to our work and ministry. Alison has already made an impact and is building on the many connections we have in and around London. If you haven’t spoken to her yet, she’s around most Wednesdays and would love to meet you.
Another new initiative we are taking forward in working with the Church Planting and Growth Centre, based at St Edmund’s, is to encourage those involved in Church Planting to think seriously about finding a Spiritual Director, if they don’t already have one. They have asked us to take a slot on each of their courses to outline Spiritual Direction and offer assistance in finding someone – right up our street!
So, lots going on, and our monthly newsletters will also continue keeping you up to date.
He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!
