One Day Event
Our gift to you. A free opportunity for you to seek God afresh and enjoy the tranquil beauty of Ellel Grange and our grounds.
Away from the busyness of life and demands, this is time for you to connect with God afresh and to discover something more of His heart for you and His gentle healing touch in your own life.
The day will be an informal opportunity for fellowship shaped to help us have time and space to draw close to God and allow Him to touch us in the busyness of our lives. It will include a short inspirational talk, optional creativity and fun activities, and opportunity to wander round the gardens, enjoy the quiet of the house and find space to pray. If you love books, we have a very well stocked Christian bookshop to help you meditate further as you reflect on what God puts on your heart. Please book to reserve a place and come and be refreshed by sharing relaxed time (re)focusing on God.
Open to adults of all ages.
