Guided by Geoff Colmer and Beth Powney, the day will consist of mainly one-hour sessions with a break for lunch. Each session will begin with an introduction and some guidance for about 10-15 minutes, and then time to reflect and pray as you choose. You're welcome to attend the whole day or just a part.
