Your Word is Life: a prayerful encounter with God through Scripture

Saturday November 9th, 10.30am to 3.30pm at St John Fisher, Thanet Rd, Bexley, DA5 1AP

The Bible is a word of life, awakening us to the presence of God, and inviting us to make a difference to the world in which we live.

Through inputs and workshops Your Word is Life will give you the opportunity to experience a variety of ways of praying with the Bible.

The day will also introduce Ways into Prayer, an accessible resource produced by the Archdiocese of Southwark Spirituality Commission.

Spirituality towards the end of life

Spirituality towards the end of life

People are becoming increasingly aware that end of life care has to include a spiritual dimension – even if they are not sure what this might look like.

These Spirituality days give us an opportunity to listen to speakers who have been involved in developing programmes and resources for those involved in supporting people on this stage of their life-journey – whether as the person preparing for death or as a part of their family or circle of friends.

There will be time for personal reflection and conversation on what we hear.

We will also be introduced to a Ministry of Consolation course being developed by the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.

 

Thursday 24 May at St Aloysius, Phoenix Road, Euston, NW1 1TA - Speaker: TBC

Thursday 31 May at Salford Cathedral Centre, 3 Ford Street, Salford, M3 6DP - Speaker: Dr Karen Groves MBE

 

Both days run between 11am-3.30pm (Coffee from 10.30) Lunch – packed or available at local cafés. Donations to help to cover costs welcome.

In a Year's Turning: CSN Day Conference 2018

CSN DAY CONFERENCE 2018

In a Year's Turning

Four Seasons of Spiritual Growth

Keynote Speaker: Christopher Chapman

Saturday 28 April 2018
St Aloysius R.C. Centre, Euston, London NW1 1TA

In the Bible, spiritual growth is likened to the natural development processes of plants, and the part played by gardeners, whether human or divine. In a Year's Turning will explore four recurring movements of this growth -

Becoming rooted and grounded in God
Emerging into being in response to God's invitation
Struggling towards abundance through resistance
Bearing fruit and being willing to fall

These four are movements, not stages. They are seasons that meet us afresh within a lifetime of growing, stirring us once more into abundant life. Chris says: The ever turning seasons of the year and the rhythms of life within the natural world have helped me understand the different movements of God within my experience. I hope this day will enable us to sense how we can co-operate with God as we are drawn into a more fruitful life.

Christopher Chapman is an experienced retreat leader and spiritual director. Chris is the author of Seeing in the Dark [2013] and Earthed in God: Four movements of spiritual growth [due to be published by Canterbury Press in spring 2018]. He is a regular guest director at St. Beuno's Spiritual Exercises Centre. Formerly he was the Spirituality Adviser for the Anglican Diocese of Southwark. He also co-led spiritual direction programmes at the Franciscan Study Centre in Canterbury.

BOOKINGS FOR THE CONFERENCE ARE OPEN.
COST £30 (£25 FOR CSN MEMBERS)
