Green Pastures

On 17th October 2009 people started arriving at about 9-30a.m. and the weeks of preparation suddenly seemed to be worthwhile. Once all who were expected had arrived, our pastor, Susannah gave the outline of the day and the welcome. Once the housekeeping arrangements were covered, Carole Parkinson led her first session.
Following refreshments we separated into groups for Pastel drawing demonstrations with Anne Turk; card making with Elaine Tucket from “Craftastic”; creative writing or quiet reflection in the especially decorated chapel. Lunch came too quickly, but was a lovely experience, the “bring and share” produced a wonderful spread.
After lunch some of us went on a short walk across the nearby fields. Group work followed again with the addition of pampering with Mary Kay products. Following a second session from Carole, Susannah led the closing devotions. We are looking forward to holding a similar event next year, please get in touch if you would like to receive details.
