Thursday 22nd August ‘Discipleship’ -Led by Donna Worthington
A boat, a net cast into the deep and a call to follow the liberating Christ.
We explore Luke 5:1-11 and The Farewell Discourses of John’s Gospel, Jesus’ profound words to those who would follow Him. During the course of the day, there will be presentation, discussion, images, music, silence and we will explore different ways of praying, including Ignatian and contemplative prayer.

Thursday 24th October ‘A Tale of Three Holy Lands’ Led by Archdeacon Mark Ireland £20
Archdeacon Mark will have just returned from leading a pilgrimage that will involve staying in Galilee, Bethlehem, Amman & Petra. Walking in the footsteps of Moses & Jesus. This quiet day will reflection biblical sites in the light of contemporary political complexities.
Thursday 21st November ‘Thy Kingdom Come Led by Archdeacon Michael Everitt £20
What living out the Lords prayer means for us today.
Thursday 19th December 2019 ‘ Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence’ Led by Revd Jonathan Carmyllie £20
The Christmas festival is accompanied by so much razzmatazz, both sacred and secular, that it is easy to lose sight of the fact that the Incarnation is a holy mystery of such awesome splendour that, by rights, we should be rendered speechless. Today is an opportunity to reflect on the mystery and splendour of ‘Emmanuel’, God with us, and, in the midst of the noise all around us, to keep a holy silence.
