Poetry for Advent
December 2 @ 7:00 pm - December 3 @ 8:30 pm
As Advent arrives, join a retreat exploring poetry – well-known and not-so-well known; poetry that flexes muscles of celebration, resistance, doubt, desire and belief. No previous poetry experience required, and we will use the poems as a jumping-off point for the stories of our lives.
Fri 2 Dec 7pm-9pm & Sat 3 Dec 10am-4pm, 7pm-8.30pm.
PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS RETREAT THROUGH EVENTBRITE HERE.
Includes Saturday lunch.
Suggested donation £50, but please give what is manageable.
