Simple Quiet Days at Whirlow Spirituality Centre: Tues Nov 15th and monthly

From our friend Linda Hoy.

Simple Quiet Days are intended to provide you with the space to ‘be’ before God; to relax, reflect and pray, and so to renew your spiritual resources. The space available will be quiet and honouring of your quiet.

The day begins at 9.45am (with a Reflective Eucharist) and closes at 3.45pm. The programme for the day is kept very simple to provide maximum space for you – our hope is that you will use what is offered in so far as it is helpful to you.

The next Simple Quiet Day is on Tuesday 15th November. Cost is £12 to be paid in advance.
