2020 ChaplaincyAGM

chaplaincy of aquitaine

Chaplaincy Assemblée Générale in person: Saturday 3rd October 2020, 10:30am, in Doudrac (Lot-et-Garonne)

Watch this space for more details to come.

This year’s Chaplaincy annual meetings had to be postponed due to the coronavirus restrictions. The Church of England regulations have now been amended to allow us to hold our AGM in the Autumn but French Association law means that we need to hold our Assemblée Générale for the Chaplaincy earlier in the year.

We held a Chaplaincy of Aquitaine Assemblée Générale by Zoom on 11th July 2020, and hope to hold another 'in person' on Saturday 3rd October, in Doudrac, Lot-et-Garonne. All Chaplaincy members are invited to attend. Please contact Maggie Lee for details as the date approaches; you would be most welcome.

 

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)

Oak Hall Expeditions: Travel to Jerusalem 

oak hall expeditionsLinked with my ‘Home Church’ back in the UK is a Christian Holiday company, called Oak Hall expeditions which offers a range of holidays, all over the world, with a Christian message. But by far the most popular of the summer trips is the Bible Study Tours of Israel.

The help of volunteers helps make these trips as accessible as possible, and I am such a volunteer. Trips are divided between time in Jerusalem, where we will stay within short walking distance of the Old City, and Galilee, where we will stay on the shores of the lake; with an overnight stop in Bethlehem in between.

Activities include visiting Old and New Testament sites, a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee, and swimming in the Dead Sea, and evening talks by the accompanying Speaker on a biblical subject (this year I believe my speaker will be doing a study on Mark’s Gospel). The Speaker will also lead us in morning prayers, which in Galilee will be on the edge of the lake as the sun rises; a truly amazing experience.

Please feel free to contact me for more information (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), I would be happy to give you more information. To read more, click here.
