Contemplative Slow Stitching

Leader: Elizabeth Scott

BOOKINGS OPEN SOON. In 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.

Make a Joyful Noise - God who sings through us

Leader: Brigid and Laurie Main

BOOKINGS OPEN SOON. Do you love music but cannot sing? Do friends and family tell you to leave the singing to others? Then this is for you! Do you sing and want to explore new songs and music? Does your repertoire need a new lease of life? Then this is for you! God made us in his own image and gave us the voices that we have. When we use our voices, God sings through us and his joy is expressed in sound. The sound of people raising their voices in praise is the sound of God singing in their hearts.
