As we learn how to weave baskets using local wood we also encounter how we are inter-woven with our immediate environment: Being deeply interconnected with both nature and people around us we face the challenging question how we contribute to the fragile balance of our ecology. How can we be fully part of this world without joining in the destructive patterns of our society? The Revd. Jonathan Herbert will teach us the skills of basket weaving and facilitate our reflections and discussions about ecology. At the end of this weekend we hope you will take some inspiring insights with you – in addition to a wonderful basket!
The suggested donation for the weekend is £150 which includes meals, accommodation and materials. We are willing to accept less if this figure is not possible for you. Please contact Suzi who will be happy to help you with your booking in confidence. We ask people to Gift Aid their donation wherever possible.
We do not make a charge for guests to stay with us but any donation towards our life and ministry is gratefully received. Our ministry includes our work with the poor and marginalised in our country, as well as promoting Franciscan values of justice, peace and integrity of creation. We estimate that it costs £40 to host a guest per day but all your contributions enable our work to go on. Thank you for all your support and encouragement in many ways, however much you are able to give it is important to us that you come and share in our community life.
