‘Lent through Hymns and their Authors’ – Silent Lent Retreat
March 6, 2017-5:00 pm - March 10, 2017-10:00 am£285
John Packer has been an honorary Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Newcastle since retiring as Bishop of Ripon and Leeds in 2014. He writes, ‘Hymns are an underrated spiritual resource in the church. We sing them frequently and have our favourites, but rarely pay close attention to their origin and what they are saying. In this week we will explore, sing and pray through hymns often sung in Lent, to renew our own spirituality through their message and the story of those who wrote them’.
