What's on

Jesus promises that his yoke is easy and his burden light, yet for many of us life feels like a juggling act. The differing expectations of work, family, church and friends can all add to the sense of pressure. The week is an opportunity to stop, regain our bearings, and seek God’s wisdom for how to live in His unforced rhythms of grace.

We love to see how the Lord uses this peace-filled form of creativity to restore the soul – especially for those facing stressful situations in their everyday lives. Come and join us for tapestry, embroidery or any other handiwork you'd like to work on. We will be teaching Hardanger, Black work and other styles for those who want to try something new; or bring your own project and enjoy working alongside us. Beginners are very welcome and there is absolutely no competition! Each day will include times of worship and reflection on the way the Lord is at work in the tapestry of our lives; and there will be opportunities for prayer. Materials can be provided for a small charge.  Numbers are limited.

How does this relate to Christian belief?
