Living like the Kingdom is near

Seeing the light in life [through photography]

Leader: Steve Radley

The gift of photography can enable you to discover your own life and surroundings in new ways. Photography is taken from the Greek words meaning ‘to draw’ and ‘light’, so literally means, drawing with light. The retreat will use light as a metaphor for life and explore ways of using the camera in a contemplative way to help us see light and life in its many forms. We will also explore the story of our images and discover what the images we are drawn to may help us discover about our own life.

A Journey into Silence

Leaders: Revd Peter Doodes and Fiona Bower

It’s not totally silent (!) but please read on. Silence is a rare commodity in today’s world, but the need for silence in order to contact and communicate with God is a fact, and here that opportunity will arise. You will be doing all of this without the constant pressures of an ever-nagging news media doing their calculated level best to wrench your thoughts and minds from what is really important in your life. Therefore, so we can all take advantage of what we have learned, each day of this retreat will be a separate journey into silence.

The Trinity. Obstacle to faith or gateway to love

Leader: Bp Richard Jackson

The Doctrine of the Trinity is the great Christian idea about God. However, it’s one of those things you sort of know you have to believe to be orthodox, but hope you never have to explain! This 24 hour retreat will be devotional more than heavily theological, but I hope will take us on a journey into the heart of God that brings life and hope.
