Administrator – Resourcing Mission and Ministry
Spirituality it is said means different things to different people. For some, it’s about growing in their faith by being part of a faith community.
An individual can then become much more aware of their own spirituality and how it grows through worship and being part of a living community. Spirituality can then be thought of in terms of being relational.
For Christians this is one way in which we might grow in our faith, how we grow in our relationship with other people and grow in our relationship with Jesus, and in so doing how we grow in our relationship with God.
For others, an awareness of their spirituality is based upon much more personal individual experiences: through private prayer, meditation, quiet reflection, mindfulness or even long walks.
Whirlow Spirituality Centre
Whirlow Spirituality Centre at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit is a leading centre in Sheffield providing facilities for individuals and groups who visit for personal and spiritual development, to explore their relationship with God through prayer, teaching and reflection individually and with others. Whirlow has been called a ‘thin place’ where people find God and a safe space for prayer, reflection and worship and is the reason that many people return again and again.
A programme of spirituality-themed events runs each year at the Spirituality Centre.
Many people recognise that having a Spiritual Director/Accompanier can be helpful. Someone to accompany you on your spiritual journey and reflect where and how God is working in your life. The Diocese maintains a network of Spiritual Accompaniers across the area that anyone, lay or ordained, can access via a short referral process.
