St Ann's RC Church Cheadle Hulme

Christian Meditation






                         (‘But when you pray, go to your private room, shut yourself in, and pray to your Father who is in that secret place...Matthew 6:5)

Meditation goes beyond words, images, thoughts and feelings.  It leads us into stillness, silence and simplicity, allowing us to be in the present moment.

The aim of Christian Meditation is to allow God’s mysterious and silent presence that is already within us to become the reality which gives meaning, shape and purpose to everything we are and do.

Today, people from all walks of life and all ages meet together regularly in schools, churches, homes, offices and prisons throughout the world.

A meditation group was founded in St. Ann’s Parish five years ago and met weekly during school terms in the parish rooms on Friday evenings.  The present restrictions, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, have curtailed our meetings, as is the case with all public gatherings.  As soon as these restriction are lifted, the intention is to resume our meetings.  Details will be shown on this website and also in the weekly parish newsletter.

If you are interested in joining our group when we can start meeting again, you will be very warmly welcomed. It is open to all, irrespective of faith background. In the meantime, if you would like to discover more about the practice of Christian Meditation, please visit the World Community for Christian Meditation website (WCCM).
