We are planning an exciting opportunity for all members of the church on Saturday 1st September. Dee Wormald and I have been arranging a church Quiet Day, which will be an opportunity to get away from the busyness of life for the day in order to reflect, pray and spend some time in fellowship.

The day will run from around 9:30am to 4pm and will include times of teaching, times of quiet prayer, lunch and a short service of Holy Communion. We have booked Ferrar House for the day, which is in Little Gidding (about 20 minutes from the parish) and is well-known as being a favourite place of TS Eliot. It's a beautiful, restful venue and will be a perfect place to spend time some time away with God.

Revd Dr Catherine Wright will be joining us to lead the day. Catherine is Vice Principal at Ridley Hall and is a tutor in Christian Spirituality. You can read more about Catherine here.

The day will cost somewhere between £20-£25 per person and that price will include tea/coffee/biscuits as well as a light lunch.

We're really excited about what God might have in store for us as we take time out to spend with him, and we hope that you'll be excited too. If you'd like to consider coming for the day then please email or phone Dee Wormald in the first instance (dee.wormald@hotmail.co.uk / 01480 386242) and we'll gather a list of names. There is only space for about 25 people to come on the day, so please put your name down as soon as possible if you'd like to come. First come, first served! We need to get a sense of numbers by the beginning of August so please let us know by the end of July at the latest if you'd like to come.

This day is open to anybody from our three churches, but I'm afraid that we don't have the ability to cater for children during the day. Please don't let transport be an issue - we hope to be able to share lifts to Little Gidding.

Please ask Mike (revmichaelbigg@gmail.com) if you have any questions. We're looking forward to the day!
