The God who speaks

02/10/2020 - 04/10/2020 12:00 am

Minsteracres team

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has decided that 2020 be a year of focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’. Throughout this ‘Year of the Word’ we will be developing and exploring new ways of responding to the God who speaks to us through the Scriptures, new ways of celebrating, living and sharing God‘s word in our own lives, within our parishes and partnerships, and with all whom we encounter. We invite you to join us for a weekend of prayer, reflection and fellowship. For individuals or groups from parishes and partnerships.

This retreat will start on Friday 2 Oct at 7pm and end on Sunday 4 October at 2pm.

Sacred in the city

23/10/2020 - 25/10/2020 7:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Margaret Silf

Jesus lived out a great deal of his ministry among ordinary situations and with ordinary people, and taught them – and us – that that is where the Kingdom of God is to be found. This retreat offers the opportunity to look with fresh eyes at our everyday, urban and suburban lives, and to find God’s transforming presence precisely there – in our homes, at our places of work, on the move, in the market-place, and in all the places where we gather. (Based on the book ‘Sacred in the City’ (Lion Hudson), Margaret Silf)

Margaret Silf is an ecumenical lay Christian who has been trained by the Jesuits in accompanying others in prayer.

This retreat starts on Friday 23 Oct at 7pm and ends on Sunday 25 Oct at 2pm
