Spirituality Days

Each year, there are Spirituality (quiet) Days, held at venues across the Diocese on a Saturday between 10 am and 3:30 pm. Each speaker will use the time in a different way, but there will be two or more sessions of input from the speaker, some quiet space in which to pray and ponder by yourself, and usually some form of worship together.

Taken from a recent brochure:
“What does ‘spiritual’ mean to you? Does it mean something that makes you feel holy or gives you a warm glow? Does it mean talking to God? For me it mainly means listening to God, trying to open myself at ever deeper levels and becoming aware of the many sneaky ways in which I resist God without realising it. Spirituality can be tough stuff.”
