Chaplaincy Women's (Online) Retreat: Saturday 10th April

encountering the risen christ

Theme: 'Encountering Jesus'.

Over the last 4 years, the Chaplaincy of Aquitaine has offered an annual residential weekend retreat for women. Following the success of our first online retreat in January, we're offering another retreat on Saturday 10th April.

Amanda Allchorn, Tina Marshall, Ingrid Lomas, and Kathryn Carr would like to invite women from across the Chaplaincy to join together online to reflect on the theme ‘Encountering Jesus’.

...with the women in the garden...

A day of retreat, a day for yourself...

Join us! Starting at 10:15 and ending at 15:30, with plenty of breaks for leg stretch, chat and time for reflection, there will be opportunities to reflect on what happened at Gethsamene, our own encounters with Jesus on our own journies... Join us in sharing worship, poetry, music and praying together.

To register, please contact Amy at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There is no cost, but we are asking for donations to the Chap-Aid general funds, which allows us to provide immediate disaster relief when called upon.

If you have any queries please contact either Amanda (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Tina (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

2020 Environment Study: "Saying yes to life"

say yes to  lifeWe continue to recommend the book "Saying yes to life" by Dr Ruth Valerio, (which was the Archbishop of Canterbury's 2020 Lent choice), which draws on the creation story in Genesis Chapter 1 in relating themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.  Voices from across the world are heard throughout and each chapter ends with discussion questions, a prayer and specially commissioned art to aid action and contemplation. 

In tandem with this book is the Church of England "Live Lent: Care for God's Creation", with weekly themes and prayers shaped around the Genesis creation themes and explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. (Church House Publishing website)
