Clergy prepare for advent with our quiet retreat day

Clergy from across our diocese gathered at Aintree Racecourse for a retreat day led by Bishop Richard.

Following last year’s clergy conference our clergy committed to meeting together as a diocese three times every year – for the Chrism Eucharist and a study and retreat day. We were delighted early this autumn when the Bishop of Sheffield, Pete Wilcox led a day’s study on the book of Ruth. This week Bishop Richard guided the clergy on a retreat day helping them prepare for the business of advent and Christmas.

The day was well received, as were the bishop’s talks which we have reproduced here.
