Friends’ Weekend 2021
Saturday 1st May, 10am – 3pm, “Practical Spirituality: spiritual practices that can energise and shape our living.”
Led by Nick Helm, spiritual director.*
As you know, the planned Friends’ Weekend in 2020 had to be cancelled, and we hoped to carry it forward to 2021 but cannot be sure about a residential weekend just yet. So we are planning to run part of the programme that we would have had, just on one day: a time of reflection on Spirituality led by Nick Helm, on Zoom, but keeping open the possibility of meeting in person if the situation allows, perhaps later in the year. This is mainly for Friends, but do invite your friends!
The day will include time for discussion in small groups,
and time for personal reflection away from the screen.
Please book via the website – cost £25
