A Brief Introduction to some of Swedenborg’s Writings and the essential teachings of the New Church over four Saturday morning sessions.  

This small group programme takes place in the friendly surroundings of Wellspring House and offers an opportunity to learn more about Swedenborg’s writings and gain an insight into some of the symbolic meaning contained in the Bible.  Each session includes prayer, reading, discussion and opportunities for questions and personal reflections.  The format is relaxed and informal. There will be time to share ideas and personal experiences and opportunity to explore the practical application of these important teachings.

The sessions are facilitated by Ray Kennion and provide an overview of New Church teachings, an opportunity for spiritual development and a place to connect with others.  The programme will be of interest to anyone curious to find out more about Swedenborg and gain a better understanding of the New Church.  For those interested in continuing their spiritual exploration beyond the group the Swedenborg Open Learning Centre offers a number of open learning modules including an Introduction to Swedenborgian Thought. 

The New Church 101 4 week programme focuses on the following themes:

  • The Lord
  • The Word
  • Love and Good Will
  • Eternal Life

The workbook to accompany this small group programme may be downloaded here free of charge. The workbook contains the readings and discussion points for each session.  All sessions take place from 10.00 AM to 12 noon on Saturday 23 February, 30 March, 27 April and 18 May.

There is a small charge of  £3 per session which includes hot drinks and biscuits.

The facilitator for this programme is Ray Kennion.  Ray is a member of the New Church, a worship leader and a trustee of the New Church College.  Ray has studied Swedenborg extensively and has an interest in spiritual and personal development.  He regularly leads the meditation sessions at Wellspring House.
