“.. speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”  (Ephesians 4:15)

 

father williamsThe Church is often described as Christ’s body on earth. This is an image that is both exciting and challenging but what does it really mean for us, today, in Aquitaine? As we seek for guidance on how to encourage growth within our church communities, it is useful to explore how we can best represent Christ to those around us, both inside and outside the church. In the tranquility of Belloc Abbey, in worship, prayer and teaching we will endeavour to understand better what it means to be the body of which Jesus is the head.

As in previous years, we hope to have plenty of time for joyful fellowship, study and teaching, informal discussions, enjoying Belloc's surroundings, participating in communal worship, etc. Besides there will be music...noisy meals... silence for those who choose to be silent...Although we pray for a rich experience, we also aim for a light touch...
