A meditation day was held at St Paul’s Church in Wokingham to bring the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence to people’s attention. The Assistant Curate, Mother Julie Mintern, was key; she lead prayers at the beginning and then every half hour until 3pm. The day was based on “Souls of our Shoes”, a Scottish initiative seen at this years General Meeting in Edinburgh. Donated shoes had short notes such as might have been written by ladies or men who had been subject to violence in a relationship. The display was left in church for the whole 16 days for those who visit the church to see.
