Calendar - Quiet Days
Monday 3rd April : What have we done with Jesus?
Jesus said: 'I am the way, the truth and the life ...' John 14:6 with Revd Angela Steele
A day during Lent to take time to reflect on how to follow Jesus in our ordinary, everyday lives. We will be looking at what scripture, poetry and the Rule of Benedict have to say to us about what it means to be a follower of Jesus and a people of The Way. 'Worship of Jesus is rather harmless and risk-free; following Jesus would change everything.' Richard Rohr 'Dancing Standing Still'
Thursday 11th May : Retreat Association Regional Quiet Day
Listening to the Dance of the Trinity - joining in with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit with Revd Sally Buddle
Through exploring the mutual giving and receiving of love between Father, Son & Holy Spirit, we will discover more deeply how to believe, receive, trust in and celebrate God's love. By accepting the invitation to join in the dance of the Trinity we hope to learn to live better as a community of believers
Tuesday 20th June : Finding God In All Things
Continuing our experience of praying with help of St Ignatius of Loyola with Helen Marquis
At the beginning of his book 'The Spiritual Exercises', he says that just as strolling, walking and running are exercises for the body, so every kind of self-examination, of meditation, of contemplation, of vocal and mental prayer, and of other spiritual activities, are called Spiritual Exercises. During the day we shall experience his different ways of praying, bringing us into a more intimate friendship with Christ, helping us become aware of how God is working in our lives - 'Finding God in all things'. It is not necessary to have attended last year's Quiet Day

Monday 9th October : What is it that you want?
with Revd Paul Swann
A Quiet Day which looks at the question of what we want as well as what God may want of us and for us. With a balance of worship, Biblical reflections, silence and space for personal response
Monday 6th November : Glimpses of Glory
Moments of Transfiguration with Revd Valerie Bonham
We will be thinking primarily of the Gospel accounts of Jesus' Transfiguration, but also consider other instances in the Bible where people had glimpses of God's glory. We will conclude with a modern story of a person whose life was transformed and transfigured by an encounter with holiness
Monday 11th December : Homecoming
with Revd Andy Percey
Deep within each of us there are parts that are searching; wandering, longing for a place to call home. Whether it is the Magi, the shepherds, Mary and Joseph or countless others throughout the centuries ... whether it is you ... Advent is a season for those searchers. Over the course of the day we will have opportunity to engage with poetry, art, scripture and silence as we hear the call of God to come home
