For this retreat Chris Chapman will be joined by Dr Gemma Simmonds and Revd. Fabian Wuyts….
Each week will be a personal take on a Christian spiritual tradition or figure and the light they shed on relationship with God, our experience of life and our practice of prayer. Looking through these windows will challenge and refresh our usual ways of seeing. For further details see here.
