Hebrew for Beginners Retreat
Date / Time: Friday 13th December 2019
This really is what it says and no previous knowledge is required!
Far from being daunted you will have fun, whilst learning some very useful skills which will enhance your reading and understanding of the bible. You will learn, for example, how to look up words in a Theological Dictionary of Hebrew – that is, a dictionary in which the words are arranged according to the Hebrew alphabet, but which are commented on in English! This is often highly enlightening and regularly goes beyond what you might find out from even a good commentary in English.
Leader: John Wigfield, Director of Pioneering Ministry and OT tutor, St Hild

Advent Quiet Day
Date / Time: Saturday 14th December 2019 10.00am
In all the Christmas rush why not take a day out to think, to pray and to prepare for the coming of Jesus? Why not set aside the noise and confusion of Christmas preparations for a few hours and come and enjoy the silence in order to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. During the day participants will have space for prayer in the church or grounds and opportunity for your own spiritual reading.
