Advent Quiet Day ‘Discovering the inclusive love of God at Christmas’ Wednesday 5 December 10am-4pm This Advent Quiet Day is a chance to stop and reflect upon our place with our neighbour in God’s Kingdom and ask the question: Who is included? We will take issues such as Poverty, Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, Sexuality and Mental Health and look at them through the lens of Christ’s birth using Scripture, stories and questions. This Inclusive Advent Quiet Day aims to install a new inclusive vision of the Kingdom for all. Led by Revd David Babbington is the Regional Ambassador for Inclusive Church and a priest within Lichfield Diocese. His sense of humour is such that topics such as this are easily accessible and yet challenging. He uses real-life stories to enable people to understand that the Church is something we are all a part of and not something to be observed. £25 inclusive of 2 course lunch and refreshments Visit our website for more information and to book your place http://www.shallowfordhouse.org
