Breathing Space

‘Breathing Space’ is the name of our monthly meditative and contemplative gathering, which makes the most of the extraordinary stillness and quiet that St Just in Roseland Church offers. 

Breathing Space: is usually held on the second Sunday of the month at St Just in Roseland church. The next reflective service will be on December 10th at 4pm.( Please note: in the winter months it is at 4pm and during the summer at 6pm).   Breathing Space is a peaceful time of reflection and meditation, an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere in St Just church – please come and give it a try! Breathing Space is usually held on the second Sunday of the month. Please contact for further details.

What happens?

Breathing Space is a very peaceful and simple gathering. We begin at 6pm with a piece to stimulate our thinking and then we simply sit for 45 minutes in silence, by following our breath or reciting a simple prayer or word to still our minds. This practice ends with us sharing the peace and departing.

Stillness and Silent Prayer

Rooted in the ancient Christian practice of contemplation, we meet once every month to develop our practice of stillness and quiet prayer. The church of St Just in Roseland is an ideal setting for this practice, with a long and hallowed history of prayer and a history of association with the Augustinians (famed for their contemplative prayer). Its creekside setting means that there is no traffic or noise from busy life to contend with. Silent prayer is an extraordinary jewel of the Christian tradition and can be found in nearly all other spiritual traditions. We offer this group as a safe and welcoming space for anyone who wishes to find peace in their lives.
