*NEW DATES* Contemplative Slow Stitching: Fri 26 - Sun 28 August

This message was added on 2022-07-14


On this Contemplative Slow Stitching retreat, we will take time to reflect on Scripture; to listen to what the Lord is saying, and to deepen our communication with him. Using pre-loved fabric, colourful threads and simple running stitches, we will quietly think and pray to allow the Lord to speak to us personally.

As well as specific times of silent stitching together there will be opportunities to walk in the garden and to reflect with others at the end of the day. The afternoons will be free.

The retreat will appeal to those who wish to take time out, slow down and reconnect with God. Each day will begin with morning prayer and end with night prayer.

No previous stitching experience is required. All materials will be provided.

Retreat leader Elizabeth Scott is a lay minister and an experienced Spiritual Director. She is a creative textile artist who loves to communicate through painting and stitching. Elizabeth has led many contemplative stitching retreats over the past 5 years both in Norfolk and Northumberland – and even one in Hong Kong! She is amazed how the Lord has graciously blessed her ministry and is delighted when others find how slow stitching can become a meaningful way of communicating with the Lord for them. Elizabeth currently runs a weekly art and craft group for refugees and asylum seekers in her home church in Norwich as part of their outreach.
