Saturday Quiet Day: Waters Of Life

19th August 2023, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm


The Scriptures and the sacraments resonate with the symbolism of water.  Beyond our daily home-based involvement with water in drinking and washing, the wild water of the natural world speaks of God’s intimate relationship with the created world.  The day will lead into time to explore and ponder the significance of water and spiritual life, in ways that are seen and unseen, expected but also sometimes surprising.


Revd Canon Mike Booker

This Quiet Day will be led by Mike Booker.  After many years in parish ministry, theological education and on a bishop’s staff team, Mike is now partly retired and is rediscovering his roots as a geographer.  He lives on the bank of the Great Ouse in Huntingdonshire, and loves the local wild life, kayaking through the seasons and occasional wild swimming.  Mike is married to Liz, and has three grown-up children.+



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 even both! Check for availability and a quote when you contact us.
