Fostering Prophetic Ministry in Wilderness Times

Julie Leger Dunstan offers a challenging and nourishing  exploration of this theme in a one-day training  – on request – to networks around the country: online or in person.

Inspired by the rich prophetic dimension of the season, she will also be offering a short weekly online course/retreat during Advent this year, to explore this theme more deeply through music, poetry, theology, prayer, personal reflection and sharing.

Beholding God’s Presence

 A Retreat for Spiritual Accompaniers
with Nick Helm

6 – 10 October Foxhill House, Frodsham, Cheshire

A space for those who offer this often hidden ministry, to draw more deeply upon God’s presence, to find inspiration, encouragement and renewal.

In the light of Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well (John 4), we will reflect on aspects of the dynamic of spiritual accompaniment: on the threshold; receiving hospitality; discerning listening; deepening; holding focus, finding poise, personal encounter…

Sorry – now sold out – email me if you would be interested in a future run of this retreat.
