Quiet Day – 30 September 2017

A quiet day was held on 30 September 2017, led by the Rev’d Ian Hill. The group studied the Parable of the Sower, and made a collage (photo below) out of seeds as an aid to prayer.

Prayer:

Lord, Soften my heart

Take my Rocks and Weeds

Make me into fertile ground

Bear a crop in me
