If life has become all too full, way too busy and far too "noisy", here is another opportunity for you to unplug from the rat-race for a day in order to intentionally still your heart and purposefully engage with God and others.
On Saturday, 8th December, 2007, you’re invited to our second Quiet Day .. a day structured for prayer, worship, reading, Christian meditation and fellowship.
Initially, we’ll be meeting in "The Chapel"; a beautiful room at the Edmund Rice Retreat and Conference Centre, better known as "Winbourne", which is set on 250 acres in the Mulgoa Valley and was once the home of a notable Australian colonial family.
Winbourne’s address is 1315 Mulgoa Road, Mulgoa, NSW, and is about 15 kilometres from Penrith and 10 kilometres from the M4 Motorway. The entrance to Winbourne is directly across the road from the Settlers Restaurant.
So, what is a Quiet Day like? Well, click here to read the report and the comments from our first Quiet Day to get an idea.
You will need to bring your Bible, perhaps your journal and any devotional books you might want to use during the times of silence. There will also be ample room for creativity, so if you would like to bring a musical instrument for your personal use or perhaps art materials, please feel free.
There is also a labyrinth on site that will be made available to us across the whole day.
Tea and coffee will be provided across the day, but you’ll need to bring some meat and whatever else you like for a BBQ lunch.
There is a small cost of $10 per person for the day and you will need to register your intention to come by Friday 30th November as I need to give final numbers to Winbourne. So, in summary …
