The gifts of winter - resting and playing in hibernation
InterPlay Saturday 8 August 2.00pm - 3.30pm
An opportunity to creatively explore and express how it is for us right now, to shift our energy, and release new freshness using InterPlay tools and practices, storytelling, moving and singing. We’ve learnt so much and there’s so much to share. It will be such fun!
A quiet afternoon of prayer 9 August, 2pm to 4pm.
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, "Surely God is in this place, and I was not aware of it." Genesis 28:16
Be present in your place, wherever you are, and listen and learn from the land, listen to what it says of God, and what God says to you through the land. Gather on zoom, pray together, listen to a short reflection, spend focussed time in silence wherever you are, praying, listening, walking, reading, journalling, drawing, gardening, sewing. Sit with some questions and scripture, then gather again to share our experience.
Awakening - talks to encourage, challenge and inspire
