‘The Virgin is with Child’ (Is.7.14ff)’ – An Advent Weekend Retreat
15th December – 17th December

During this Advent residential weekend retreat we will reflect and pray with the pregnant Virgin Mother of God, awaiting the birth of her child. How this birth fulfils the prophetic and messianic longing of the ancient Hebrews and our own deepest longings will be explored. This retreat will invite us to enter into mystery of the waiting and expectancy of Advent in order to experience in a new way the power and promise of the Incarnation of the Word of God.

Time: Friday 19.00 to Sunday 12.00 noon (UK)
