‘Resting in the Word’: A Contemplative Weekend Retreat

22nd – 24th July

This retreat is part of a series of weekend retreats. Each weekend stands alone, with its own theme, but all are connected by the contemplative dimension and offer a different perspective to help us live in continual awareness of God’s presence. Through ‘contemplative reading’ we will explore the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, the Word of God alive and active, ever creating, ever restoring. Time will be given for both private and group practice of this way of praying.
