In this pre-Advent retreat, we explore some of the stories of waiting in the Advent narrative, using art, poetry, reflection and prayer. It will be a quiet time, but not silent.

Lynn is an experienced spiritual accompanist and retreat giver, a retired Anglican parish priest with a previous career in medicine.

John has worked for various charities (in prisons, mental health and social care etc.) in a voluntary capacity for many years after a career in banking. He is a former member of the Diocesan Training Team, with a particular interest in lay leadership. He says he is now ‘a gardener’, but is also chair of trustees of ‘Bungoma Calling’, a charity which helps to provide education for young people from an orphanage in Kenya, and training for clergy and church lay leaders. He has led several retreats and quiet days.
