Launde 900: Mark – The Gospel

Join us for this Ancient Wells – Living Water event to mark the 900th anniversary of Launde Abbey, as David Newman performs Mark – The Gospel.

The books we now call the Gospels began as stories passed from one person to another in marketplaces, synagogues and homes as people remembered and shared the amazing news about Jesus.

In a return to that ancient experience our 900th anniversary celebrations kick off with our Warden, David Newman, performing his acclaimed Mark – the Gospel, a compelling recitation of the entire Gospel of Mark from memory.

Come and experience perhaps the most dramatic and direct of the Gospels from beginning to end as it was originally meant to be heard.

The performance will include an extended intermission with finger buffet.

Launde 900: The Great Celebration

Join us for this Ancient Wells – Living Water event to mark the 900th anniversary of Launde Abbey: a celebration of the Abbey’s anniversary and a great day out for all the family!

The day begins with a great service of celebration led by the Bishops from the dioceses of Leicester and Peterborough. During the service we’ll sing, hear readings and poetry, reflect together on the value of prayer, silence and retreat, and take an opportunity to give thanks for the work of the Abbey. We’ll also commit ourselves afresh to the continuing ministry of Launde: our heart of prayer, our warmth of hospitality, and our service of the wider church and community.

The service will be followed by an afternoon packed with events and activities to suit all ages and tastes: poetry readings with Malcolm Guite, medieval archery, walks in the grounds and Launde woods, tours of Launde, and so much more.

Fearing the Workhouse: Reflecting together on Poverty and Power

Speaker: Sue Richardson, Christian Aid’s Theological Education Advisor 

How do we learn about poverty and how do we see it today? Jesus tells his audience that they will have the poor with them always. Do we hear this as affirming the inequality we see, or do we resonate with the implied ‘therefore do this….’ and strive to respond in the face of poverty’s challenge? Can the practice of our faith resource us in prayer, generosity and action?

The talk will be at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House, where we will have lunch (suggested donation £5.00 per person) before going on to the Southwell Workhouse. Entrance is free to card carrying National Trust members. Entry will cost £9.60 for non-members.

About the Southwell Workhouse: The Workhouse was built in 1824 as a place of last resort for the destitute. It was influenced by prison design and housed around 160 inmates. The regime was harsh. Visiting the property prompts reflection on how society has tackled poverty through the centuries.

A 9 day Pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus led by The Rt Revd Donald Allister

A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a very special experience. My testimony, shared by many who have travelled with me before, is it that the bible comes to life in remarkable ways. In addition, today’s situation in Israel and Palestine, inseparable from the very complex history, is seen and experienced quite starkly.
We will have opportunities to meet, listen and talk to ordinary people as well as community and other leaders.

The pilgrimage is open to all. However, please bear three things in mind: first, we will be worshipping as Christians each day; second, a reasonable degree of fitness is needed, as we will have to do quite a bit of walking, including up hills and steps and on uneven rocky ground; third, although we will eat well with lovely Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food, and the restaurants we use are very helpful and hospitable, it may not always be possible to meet every dietary requirement in the way you might be used to.

This won’t be a holiday, though it may well refresh those parts that holidays can’t reach.  It will be stimulating, deeply moving, perhaps emotionally exhausting. You will almost certainly be changed.

I hope you can join us.

Gender Variance and Pastoral Care

Speaker: Susannah Cornwall is Senior Lecturer in Constructive Theologies at the University of Exeter. She leads the Modelling Transgender Spiritual Care project in partnership with the West of England NHS Specialist Gender Identity Clinic.

How can Christians best respond to gender-variant, trans and nonbinary people? This day gives an opportunity to reflect on recent social and medical trends in the care of people going through gender transition. We will explore some biblical and theological responses to gender variance, including examples of both conservative and liberal responses and engaging closely with trans Christians’ experiences and testimonies. Finally, we will explore gender variance and church policy, looking at some practicalities surrounding matters such as welcomes and celebrations, naming liturgies, and implications for individuals' journeys of discernment for ordained or other ministry.

The Theological History of the Civil War

Speaker: Bishop Donald Allister


Where did the divine right of kings come from? Why did Charles try to impose episcopacy on the Scots? Did Laud cause the Civil War? Why was the Act of Uniformity so strict? And what can we learn from all of this?

The talk will be at St Bartholomew’s, Greens Norton (near Towcester) before going on to a buffet lunch at The Butcher’s Arms for lunch (£9.00 per person to include a hot drink). We will then go on to Canons Ashby. Entrance is free for card carrying National Trust members. Entry will cost £8.50 for non-members.

NOTE: Sometimes the house is shut in November for conservation reasons. If so, our visit will be to the church and the gardens.

About Canons Ashby
: The house was home to the Dryden family, who during the Civil War were Puritans and supported Parliament. A fight between Parlimentarian and Royalist soldiers took place on the grounds and the nearby church. The only casualty was the shepherd boy who had kept watch, and a statue honouring his sacrifice stands in the gardens.

Canons Ashby, Nr Towcester
