Love’s Urgent Longings With Gillian Coxhead

Led by Gillian Coxhead

St John of the Cross wrote; ‘I looked at your Cross, O Christ, and there read the song of your love.‘  On this retreat we will have the opportunity to explore what it is to be ‘fired by loves urgent longings’, to go out into the ‘Night’, to sing Christ’s song of love in the World.

Suggested donation £190
