Poetry Break

Some read a poem they’ve written, or one from a book they like; others just listen, and join in discussion if they wish. Whether writing,reading, or listening to poetry there’s an invitation to explore aspects of our lives and the world from new perspectives and unusual angles. Poetry can been encountered when expected or sought out, and in unexpected and unsuspected places and situations, too. As we ‘do’ more poetry, we can become aware of poetry around us, and the poetry that’s deep within the structures and rhythms of God’s creation.

Poetry Break is on the second Thursday of each month, from 11:00 to 12:30. You'd be very welcome to join the next one. 

Most months, for those who wish to write a poem, there’s a theme set, to give somewhere to start, or maybe offer a bit of a challenge. Poems that aren’t on the month’s theme are welcome too, of course, and once every few months there’s a no set theme month. The themes for the next few months are:

  • 08 February 2024: Walking is the Ribbon of Poetry
  • 14 March 2024: (A Poet's) Opium Den in Darkest Cheshire
  • 11 April 2024: No set theme
  • 09 May 2024: The Other Poet on the Train
  • 13 June 2024: Celebrations
