Singing Hymns again for the First Time

A day of singing and discussion led by Revd Canon Adrian Alker chair of PCN Britain, cantor Anne Paget and music director Andy Thomas.

Does linking traditional tunes with updated words appeal?
Do you find the words in our hymns comforting because they are familiar?
Shouldn't they instead challenge us?
If so this is the day for you.

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
