Encounter Days

Encounter Days

~ connecting more deeply with God ~


How do you most readily experience a sense of God’s presence?

Some people love silence and long for space to simply be. 
Others find silence difficult, almost physically painful.

In our Encounter Days there will always be 
lots of space for quiet for those who value the silence, but 
we also recognise that not everyone processes internally. 

We want to encourage additional ways of seeking a sense of God’s presence which might include discussion, prayer, or walking in a group or with another, 
making or listening to music, making or creating something, reflection using writing or reading. 

Each Encounter Day is lead by a guest leader and starts with tea and coffee at 9.30am, finishing at 3.30pm.

£27 per person - Includes lunch and refreshments.

‘Who do you say that I am?’

If Jesus were to ask you that question, how would you answer?

Through 2023 we will be exploring some of the pictures that Jesus used of himself in the ‘I am’ sayings.

2024 Encounter Days

‘God gives...’

 Encountering and receiving from the God of abundance.

In John’s Gospel, Jesus says, 

’I have come to give life - life till it overflows.’  (John 10:10)

What an amazing gift, but I wonder… is that the experience of many of us?

Rather than the abundance that Jesus promised, sometimes our own experience is one of scarcity - not enough space, time, energy, enthusiasm, resilience... 

Through our encounter days this year, we will be reflecting on how we have a God who gives… gives all that we need to live for him and experience the abundant life that Jesus offers. So may we encourage you to make space for time away at Foxhill, whether for a day or a few days, to meet with and receive from the God who gives.
