Extra-ordinary God in an Ordinary Life

Are you seeking a more powerful sense of God’s presence, but don’t know where to find it? A deeper experience of Him, but don’t know how to achieve it? Do you sometimes feel inadequate or let down because you don’t get more spiritual ‘fireworks’? Join with others on this Retreat Day to discover how we can encounter God in the ordinary stuff of life and meet Him on our everyday paths; to recognise His hand and voice always at work and to know His unfailing love in all things.

The retreat takes place on Saturday 8th November from 10.00am to 3.30pm at the Lighthouse, Hilton, Inverness, IV2 4UA and will be led by Merryn Glover (Author) with support from Steve Aisthorpe (Mission Development Worker).  The day will offer insights from scripture, sharing encouragement with each other, communal worship and quiet time alone as we draw closer to God and explore the gifts He has for us, in the here and now.

There is a charge of £15 to cover costs and pre-registration is required.

Tea/coffee will be provided and people are asked to bring their own lunch.
