Lee Abbey is home to a Christian community on the breathtaking Devon coast. Individuals, couples, families and churches come to be renewed and inspired by God.
We will be looking at some individuals in the Bible who met God in hard places. They faced challenges we well understand; fear, doubt, loss and failure. But they found God’s grace was strong enough to carry them through. As we explore their stories and relate them to our own, we are looking to the same God – Father, Son and Spirit – to sustain us on our journey.
David Rowe, Debbie Lewer, Monique Sliedrecht, Steven Faux
A conference celebrating faith and the arts.
Monique Sliedrecht and Penny Faux (Fine Art); Steven Faux (Music Composer); Lloyd Notice and Andy Harrison (Performing Arts); Debbie Lewer (Art Historian); and David Rowe (Warden of Lee Abbey) combine together in this creative conference to explore “Encounters on the Way”. Through their art specialisms and through insights from the Bible each will share perspectives from their own rich journey with God and invite you to a new and fresh encounter “on the Way” for yourself.
The conference is open to anyone who would like to gain a fresh and creative vision of God through the window of art.
