Growing up into the Children of God

With David Newman

Deepening Discipleship

The Enigma of Forgiveness with Stephen Cherry

Forgiveness is one of the central words of Christianity, and many Christians feel it is always good to forgive. There are, however, occasions when it is not simply a black and white matter. This is a day of discussion and reflection on the different aspects of forgiveness in order to develop a deeper understanding of when forgiveness is appropriate.

Please book your place through Launde Abbey.

The Contemplative Heart

With Ian Cowley

The Holy Spirit leads us to bring our restless and wayward hearts to the ever-loving heart of God. We learn that being comes before doing, and that ‘who I am before God’ is far more important than ‘how much I am doing?’ When we find our peace and security in Jesus, we are enabled ‘to walk by the Spirit and not gratify the desires of the flesh’ (Galatians 5:16).

Please book your place through Launde Abbey.
