St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace is consecrated for Christian worship and we hold a monthly service of Holy Communion in the nave. People of all Christian denominations are welcome to celebrate. People of all faiths and none are most welcome to attend and to receive a blessing if they wish.

We use a traditional liturgy and the service will include readings and an address from our Chaplains. Our Chaplains help shape and deliver our programme for the Christian Fellowship on Christian Peacemaking in the 21st Century.

St Ethelburga’s prayer for an end to violence

God of life,

Every act of violence in our world, between myself and another, destroys a part of your creation.

Stir in my heart a renewed sense of reverence for all life.

Give me the vision to recognise your spirit in every human being, however they behave towards me.

Make possible the impossible by cultivating in me the fertile seed of healing love.

May I play my part in breaking the cycle of violence by realising that peace begins with me.
