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.

Enjoy a superb meal and drinks, the sparkling company and conversation of your fellow guests, and the glorious warmth of a summer evening surrounded by the Abbey gardens.

Our after-dinner speaker, Adrian Plass, is a well known speaker and writer who is sure to bring his trademark mixture of humour and thoughtfulness.

Launde 900: Choirs Together at Launde

Join us for this Ancient Wells – Living Water event to mark the 900th anniversary of Launde Abbey: traditional evensong bringing together the choirs of two cathedrals.

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.
