In Mark’s Gospel, Jesus said to his disciples:

Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.

Jesus the teacher was sharing wisdom with his disciples. He knew the value of stopping, resting, listening, praying and making time to be with his God.

Today as modern-day disciples you are invited to rest your soul, relax, become aware of PRESENCE, you with God and God with you. A time to clear a space for God’s action. We don’t know what God has in store for us but are we willing to risk what we will find out?

You are invited on this day to engage with opportunities to hear the whisperings of God through prayer, reflection, scripture, music, art and nature in and around this beautiful area including the gardens, the church and little nooks you can enjoy and find your quiet place. You will receive a take home booklet to revisit and restore your spirit at other times.

This day is suitable for all adults. It is also approved by CESA as a System Accredited Module for teachers, requiring the submission of a 1500 word reflection paper.
