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

Westgate New Church, 68b Westgate, Peterborough PE1 1RG

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.
