Soull Work: Sept. 10th 9.30am-1pm

‘Soul Work’

The healing of the paralysed man – Mark 2: 1-12
Sat. 10th September
In this Soul Work exploration at the Meeting House; we will start at 9.30, for 9.45 am, and finish at 1.00 pm.

On this occasion we will explore our understanding of sin, trust, forgiveness and healing, knowing that areas of our own lives can also be paralysed. In a greater consciousness we can raise our level of trust; and so bring to our lives and to the world an experience of greater healing. All are welcome.
