The monthly Eucharist service is held at Fir Chlis House of Prayer, in an upstairs chapel which gives a cosy and welcoming feel to all who attend.
Following the Eucharist service a shared lunch and fellowship is had and enjoyed by those attended.
Fir Chlis also operated as a Retreat house and also offers occasional "time out" quiet days in a remote and idyllic setting.
Very recently a labyrinth has been added, as shown in the picture above for walking whilst taking time out for quiet contemplative prayer.
For walking in peaceful meditation and contemplation.
