Days of Reflection

During our days of reflection, participants arrive from 10am for a 10.30am start. The day is divided into two sessions -one before 12 noon and one after. There will be plenty of opportunity to be alone and quiet. There is worship at midday - on Fridays this is always Eucharist. The days draw to a close with corporate prayer at 3.30pm. After this tea is available (and cake!)

May 18th - 'Gracious presence, gracious gift, gracious promise' - led by Sister Rachel Overton.

We shall spend some time reflecting upon the theme of hospitality; the hospitality we ourselves practise and receive and also the hospitality of God.

May 25th - Sprituality of Creativity in Music, led by the Rev Stephen Buckman. Stephen studied music in London and Paris and worked as a professional musician for over 20 years conducting choral music, vocal coaching and musical direction in London's West End.
