Event description

Description

Life for many of us in this part of the world is busy. How then can we learn to be still and to ‘pray ceaselessly’
(1 Thess. 5.17), not only when we are on retreat, but when we face the seemingly endless demands of normal life, at work, at home and sometimes even at church? During this morning, Ian will help us explore how to push back against busyness, becoming a contemplative minister (whatever our calling) and learning to live in the present moment.

About the leaders:

Ian Cowley is an Anglican priest who has served in parish ministry in South Africa, Sheffield, Cambridge and Peterborough. From 2008 to 2016 Ian was Co-ordinator of Spirituality and Vocations in the Diocese of Salisbury. He is author of four books on spirituality, discipleship and the local church, the most recent entitled The Contemplative Minister. He has recently retired from full time ministry and continues to write and teach, while also pursuing his interests in bird watching and slot car racing.

Sarah Hutton is the Spiritual Growth Facilitator for the Diocese of Guildford.

Recommended £5 donation on the day.
