Look upon the Lord

Psalm 34 verse 5 tells us to ‘Look to the Lord’. St Clare of Assisi tells us to ‘Gaze upon the Lord’. Using the image of the St Damiano Cross as a starting point for our reflections, we will consider what it might mean to cultivate an attitude in life of ‘looking to the Lord’. In the middle of Lent, this day provides a way of preparing for the coming of Passiontide and Holy Week.

The day will include time to reflect on our own experiences of God, some reflections from Sr Rachel, as well as time to be quiet.

Open to all, and for those who have no previous experience of quiet days and silence, guidance will be given as how to spend times of quiet.

Please bring a packed lunch. Reserve a place here or for more information please contact Sr Rachel Overton sister.rco@icloud.com

Understanding Christianity Day 3 FULL

A set of resources called Understanding Christianity: Text Impact Connections, offers an approach to teaching and learning about Christianity with units of work and supporting resources from EYFS to Year 9. It was launched at Lambeth Palace on 26th May 2016 and has been extremely well received since then with over 95% of Diocesan Schools having completed the training.

Understanding Christianity sets the bar for the quality of teaching and learning about Christianity in our schools and academies. It reinforces the messages we have been giving over the last few years about ‘digging deeper’ and engaging children and young people with the big ideas and concepts of the Christian faith. The teaching approach is one of theological enquiry, and the units of work support both continuity and progression.

The Resources

These include a handbook and units of work as well as a copy of the “Picturing Christianity” pack and a wall frieze showing the “Big Story” of the Bible. The resources will only be available to teachers who attend the training package. This has been stipulated by RE Today to ensure effective implementation.

Understanding Christianity takes place over 3 days. On day one the RE Subject Leaders will receive the resources to support implementation. Following this, participants must attend a Day Two and Day Three Encounter day.  It is not possible to attend days two and three without attendance on Day One. All sessions will take place at the Diocese of Peterborough Education Office, Bouverie Court, Bedford Road, Northampton, NN4 7YD.

Day 1 will be held on Wednesday 3 October 2018 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Day 2 will be held on Monday 14 January 2019 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Day 3 will be held on Thursday 2 May 2019 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Germinate Lecture 2019: Salt, Light and Feet of Clay

Often when we think about church and leadership we think immediately of clergy of various descriptions. But what about head teachers, office managers, newspaper editors, financial controllers, magistrates, farm managers, school governors, youth football coaches, scout leaders and chief executives?

In rural, suburban and urban communities across the UK, congregations are peppered with individuals such as these with spheres of influence that may never be touched by traditional forms of leadership within our churches

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.

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 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.

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 (£10.00 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.

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
