Leading Intercessions

Wed 14 Oct 2020, 7pm-9pm - BOOK NOW!

A short, practical session on how to plan and write intercessions, covering what to include, what to avoid and how to deliver them. The session will include the opportunity to write some intercessions together.

Growing in God's Life

Thu 15 Oct  2020 - Now transferred to two online sessions 

The two sessions will be connected so, if possible, it is best if you sign up for both, but if you can only manage one of them, we'd still love to see you.

If you have previously booked a place you will automatically be booked onto both sessions.

Drawing on biblical imagery of growth within the natural world, this day with author Chris Chapman will explore four recurring movements within spiritual development:

• Becoming rooted and grounded in God

• Emerging into being in response to God’s invitation

• Struggling towards abundance through resistance

• Bearing fruit and being willing to fall

Session One - BOOK NOW

Our mental health impacts upon our relationship with God, our spirituality and the ways in which we pray or struggle to pray. Prof Chris Cook from Durham University’s Department of Theology, Health & Spirituality will help us explore how to pray in the light of our changing mental health and guide us in considering how we faithfully and effectively accompany other people on their spiritual journey taking into account their mental health needs, issues and conditions. This day is open to all but is especially relevant for clergy, readers, spiritual directors and pastoral team members. Booking is essential.
