Labyrinth at First UMC

Holy Week – The Labyrinth will be open for walks on Good Friday, April 19 beginning at 1 p.m. with the last walk at 8:30 p.m. This date is in lieu of the 3rd Sunday walk. For information on Lent services and other events click here.

The Labyrinth laid in the Simkins Hall floor of First UMC Santa Monica is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth laid in the cathedral around 1220 CE.  Walking the Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice, a way to quiet our minds and open our spirits to the presence of the Holy.  Every step a prayer. 


The Labyrinth is open on the 3rd Sunday of the month, 3 p.m. with the last walk at 4:30 p.m. and also by reservation.  The Labyrinth is intended for individuals, retreats, church and meditation groups, and the community at large to enjoy.  Email or call the church office (310) 393-8258 to schedule a walk.  Office closed on Mondays. *Date and times subject to change.
