Women's Retreat: September 21st to 23rd

women's retreatCan you hear me? - The theme of the Women’s retreat his year is 'Listening to God', something which we feel can be be very difficult in our fast paced, noise filled world.

We would like to invite you to join us at the Abbaye d’Echourgnac (NW of Bergerac) for a weekend of drawing closer to God through a series of spiritual exercises, which will help us to 'Hear Him'. Within the programme there will be time for peace, rest and fellowship. The abbey is a beautiful sacred place that offers comfort and hospitality.

The speakers at this year's retreat will be Rev’d Elaine Labourel, Amanda Allchorn and Rev’d Charlotte Sullivan. The cost of the retreat is 130€ per person for a single occupancy en-suite room.

Oak Hall Expeditions: Travel to Jerusalem 

oak hall expeditionsLinked with my ‘Home Church’ back in the UK is a Christian Holiday company, called Oak Hall expeditions which offers a range of holidays, all over the world, with a Christian message. But by far the most popular of the summer trips is the Bible Study Tours of Israel.

The help of volunteers helps make these trips as accessible as possible, and I am such a volunteer. Trips are divided between time in Jerusalem, where we will stay within short walking distance of the Old City, and Galilee, where we will stay on the shores of the lake; with an overnight stop in Bethlehem in between.

Activities include visiting Old and New Testament sites, a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee, and swimming in the Dead Sea, and evening talks by the accompanying Speaker on a biblical subject (this year I believe my speaker will be doing a study on Mark’s Gospel). The Speaker will also lead us in morning prayers, which in Galilee will be on the edge of the lake as the sun rises; a truly amazing experience.

Please feel free to contact me for more information (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), I would be happy to give you more information. To read more, click here.
