Upcoming Events


Advent Quiet Day of Prayer and Reflection

To mark the end of the Jubilee Year, we will be hosting a quiet day of prayer and reflection on the subject of ‘Blessings, giving as the angels give.’ This Advent retreat will take place at the Institute on Saturday 8th December from 10am to 3.30pm.

This will be an opportunity to stop, take time out and pray in familiar surroundings among friends at a busy time of year. We very much hope you can join us.

The day will be led by Kate Scotland, Mari Kelly-Gross, and Ged McHale. There is a suggested donation of £10 to cover costs (payable on the day). Please bring your own lunch. Hot drinks will be provided.
