March Saturday Quiet Day

23rd March, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm


If the Word became flesh and blood, and “moved into the neighbourhood”, how then do we see our own bodies?  How do we relate to the bits we like? And the bits we don’t? A chance to think about our bodies, in both their brokenness and beauty, as “very good… wonderfully made”!

Revd David Harknett

This Quiet Day will be led by The Revd David Harknett and assisted by his daughter Rose.

David has been given to Rose as a parent, carer, friend, explorer and annoyance.  Not expected to live because of sepsis in 2013, David has mild, chronic fatigue, but is able to swim, cycle and run.  He also oversees 6 small, rural villages outside Melton Mowbray.

Rose Harknett at Launde

Rose has been given to David as a daughter, demand, friend, entertainer and irritant. During David’s sabbatical in 2022, his wife Vicky described Rose as his “greatest Mentor”. She is non-verbal and attends Birch Wood Special School.




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 before or after the event, or both?  Check for availability and a quote when you contact us.
