A day reflecting on his inspiration to his book, ‘Songs for the Soul (Rejoice Publication, 2018) and its unusual approach to contemporary theology.

A Biblical approach to online interaction
If Jesus had access to the internet what would he post? And, as importantly, what wouldn’t he post? David talks about his invaluable book and asks intriguing questions of those of us
who engage with the internet.
Which biblical principles inform its use? How might Christians steward their online presence? What does it mean to follow Jesus in this critical area of our lives?

Our September Quiet Garden Day will be a celebration of the fullness and abundance of God as the long season of Ordinary Time, whose liturgical colour is green, draws to a close. As colours change and summer gives way to autumn, this day is an invitation to reflect on the way God works in us through every season of our lives. The 13th century abbess, Hildegard of Bingen, gave us the word ‘veriditas’ for the ‘greening power of God.’ There are alway parts of our life where something is beginning, something is flourishing, something coming to an end. Wherever you feel you are in this cycle of life, you are invited to come and spend some time in this quiet place of prayer, immersed in the beauty and vitality of God, whose love for you and the world is forever green.

This really is what it says and no previous knowledge is required!
Far from being daunted you will have fun, whilst learning some very useful skills which will enhance your reading and understanding of the bible. You will learn, for example, how to look up words in a Theological Dictionary of Hebrew – that is, a dictionary in which the words are arranged according to the Hebrew alphabet, but which are commented on in English! This is often highly enlightening and regularly goes beyond what you might find out from even a good commentary in English.
Leader: John Wigfield, Director of Pioneering Ministry and OT tutor, St Hild

‘May the light of your presence which the saints enjoy surround our steps as we journey on.’ (From the Daily Office)
As Christians, we journey with Christ through the years of our life. Sometimes people leave their ordinary surroundings and make a special journey to spend time in the presence of God in a special place. Our Pilgrimage retreats are an invitation to come to such a place and stay with us for a short time – to worship, eat and talk with the brothers of the Community; to explore faith together; and to see what the Rule of Benedict might have to say for your own daily living. Come and walk with us, wherever you are on your faith journey. Whether you come alone or bring a group from your parish, you will find companions for that journey and experience the mystery of the Resurrection, the life-giving love of God at the heart of all things.

IGR’s enable you to spend a week in personal prayer and reflection on scripture, sharing silence with the Community.
There are no addresses as in other retreats. Rather, each person, meeting daily with an experienced guide, follows their own path as it seems God is leading them. The emphasis is on integrating body, mind and heart in faith.

The cost for this retreat is £420
Exploring the Religious Life…
Are you wondering if you might be called to the religious life? Come and spend some time living in a monastic community, and looking at how the Rule of Saint Benedict provides instruction on balancing the various parts of life.
