Encountering God 

9th July - Led by the Revd John Kirkland 

We shall be looking at several encounters with God in scripture, noting that they occurred at God’s initiative, but seeking to discover anything that we can do to be receptive to these kinds of encounters for ourselves. We shall look at Isaiah who encountered the holiness of God; Elijah who encountered God in discouragement; Job who encountered God in suffering. What do we learn about God from those encounters and how do they encourage us to seek God for ourselves?

 

Coming Home 

10th September - Led by the Revd Heather Carty

Extravagant, lavish and unrestrained- in the Father heart of God we find a love which knows no limits, forgiveness which knows no boundaries, and joy which knows no restraint.Throughout this day we shall set time aside to encounter ourselves as God's beloved children and to explore the invitation to know him more deeply through the parable of the two sons. Word, music image and prayer spaces will help us listen for the voice of Love that says "you are my beloved" as we continue to journey 'home'. 

 

Praying the Lord's Prayer

8th October - Led by the Revd George Crowder

We say it so often without thinking! Yet it is the most perfect expression of prayer and encapsulates all Christian life and faith in elegant simplicity. Come and meditate on this great gift of Christ, and you will find it will rend your heart and bring you closer to God our Father.
