Seeing in the Dark

Meeting God in times of struggle and uncertainty

A quiet day with Christopher Chapman.

Life is joyful, beautiful and a rich blessing, but also difficult, painful and mysterious. In this day we will draw on imagery from the Christian spiritual tradition to explore the part struggle plays within human growth and our experience of God.

Drawing on the writings of John of the Cross, Julian of Norwich, George Herbert and Gerard Manley Hopkins, the day will explore how our struggles can also become a place of encounter with the resourceful love of God.

The day will interweave input with time for personal prayer and reflection supported by a range of resources.

Take time in St Katharines extraordinary urban oasis,  a chance to step aside from the City but not leave it.

The day includes welcome coffee and pastries, lunch and afternoon pot of tea and cake.

Cost – £35
