Field of sunflowers


I have always loved sunflowers. I have a favourite mug with Van Gogh's Sunflower painting on, I have sunflower coasters and countless other sunflower 'stuff' that makes me smile.

The image of fields of sunflowers brings back memories of a cherished holiday, which in turn reminds me of family and warmth and a well earned rest.

Pioneer Retreat 2016

Join us for our Pioneer Community Retreat, led by Rev Adrian Chatfield 

9 - 12 May 2016, at Launde Abbey - limited places!

We frequently have busy, demanding lives. Sometimes it is only by pausing that we allow enough space for God to renew our spirits. We love the fact that this can be enhanced by gathering alongside others. CPL retreats seek to allow the dynamics of community to minister to each of those present, whilst providing plenty of space for those who prefer personal reflection.
