Health, Healing and Spirituality: Living in God’s Fullness - 3rd Thursdays
Initially we will hold sessions on 21st October, 18th November and 16th December, all at 7.30pm. Geoff Wright, Jo Patel and Lindsey Brown will be leading a series of online sessions exploring the connections between health, healing and spirituality. They may be of particular interest to those involved in pastoral visiting. The series will include the practice of resting in silence to let God speak; learning to listen (to God and to others); deepening our experience of prayer; recognising our limits; growing in confidence. We hope that this open group will eventually find its own rhythm and areas for exploration. Register with
