    Revd Ian Spencer is leading a day on "Contemplating Christmas", that is, how might we experience the incarnation of God as man ? What does the nativity of Christ tell us about how we might experience "God with us - Emmanuel" for ourselves ?

    The emphasis will be on experiencing this, rather than having a theological discussion, and is part of the "practice experiencing prayer" (pep) days Ian has been leading during the year.

    The day includes all refreshments and a two-course lunch. As these days are increasingly popular it's best to book early. Cost £30  To book your place click on this link  Contemplating Christmas

    During this weekend we will discover what the message of Advent and Christmas can mean in the context of our lives as gay, lesbian, bisexual men & women or transgendered people. Our colours of the Rainbow may lead us to this Christ event.  

    We remember that Christ was born in the midst of outcasts of his time. As queer men and women of faith we also experience that the religions of our time do not necessarily want us in their midst, yet we find our place, trust our journey and are blessed.  Like the Magi in the Nativity story we have gifts to bring,  and we are invited to consider what these gifts mean as LGBT people both for ourselves and the world.

    Our time together will consist of talks and discussions, liturgy and meditation, prayer and visualisation with time for quiet reflection and rest. Wherever you are on your faith journey or whatever spiritual background you are from, you are welcome to participate.

    Residential retreat: £180 includes accommodation, meals and refreshments.

    Retreat led by Urs Mattmann Acc. MBACP www.ursmattmann.com -  Author of COMING IN – Gays and Lesbians reclaiming the spiritual journey www.ionabooks.com     To book your place just click on this link Christ in the Rainbow
