About Us

This website was created by Reigate Methodist Church in response to demand by those who have benefitted from the meditations.

Rev Clive McKie, has developed these meditations through his ministry in the Church and in prison chaplaincy.  In 2018, Taketime received funding from the Methodist Church of Great Britain to allow Clive and a part-time Project Administrator (Elizabeth) to develop Taketime for the next three years, with a view to it becoming self-funding,

The project includes training Churches, Fresh Expressions of Church, Schools, Prison Chaplaincies, Armed Forces Chaplaincies, Hospital and Hospice Chaplaincies in how best to use Taketime meditations in their situations.

The Taketime Together meditation groups that were developed at Reigate Methodist Church (which are attended by people with a range of faith backgrounds), are being replicated around the country.  Leaders from Churches across the denominations (from Aberdeen to Clacton on Sea), have been trained to run Taketime Together groups.

All are welcomed and enjoy the sessions, which are intentionally inclusive, non-directive and experiential.

No faith background or knowledge is needed to attend, enjoy and benefit from a Taketime Together group.

Taketime operates under the governance of the Redhill and East Grinstead Methodist Circuit, charity registration 1133918.

For many, the meditations are primarily about experiencing a deep sense of healing peace, for some they have proved life-changing.

The Methodist Church is one of the many mainstream churches that belong to Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.  As such it believes that Jesus is God’s source of salvation and that, as John Wesley, who founded Methodism said,

"All people need to be saved.

All people can be saved.

All people can know they are saved.

All people can be saved to the uttermost."
