Quiet Day: The Impact of Advent ***FULLY BOOKED***

4th December 2023, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm


This event is now fully booked.

In this Quiet Day we shall be seeking to understand something of the impact of Advent on our vision, out attitudes and our way of life.  As we come before God, we shall be following the practice of the Fellowship of Contemplative Prayer in receiving the word of God in stillness.  There will be an opportunity to pray together, to listen to God, and also to be alone and enjoy the beauty of the Launde Abbey surroundings.

Revd Canon Charles Dobbin

This Quiet Day will be led by The Revd Canon Charles Dobbin.  Charles has spent a considerable amount of his ministry in Leicester diocese, moving from ministry in South London to serve in Melton Mowbray, then Loughborough and Ashy-de-la-Zouch before moving to be team rector in Leeds. There he became involved in inter faith work, becoming chair of Leeds Faiths Forum, receiving an MBE for services to community cohesion. At this time, he was also chaplain of the Fellowship of Contemplative Prayer. Retiring in 2016, he and his wife Ros moved to Loughborough to be near the family. Since then, he has revived old links, among which has been the leading of some Quiet Days at Launde.


Quiet Day price: £44 includes lunch and coffee and tea throughout the day.
Why not think about extending your time at Launde by staying overnight after the event.  Check for availability and a quote when you contact us.
