Quiet Day reflections


THIS is Quiet Day week at The Well and the first one yesterday, Thursday, was a very special time.

Anne was leading then and will be leading again tomorrow, so this is Richard updating the column with just a taste of what’s been happening.

Thanks to the impact of the snow earlier in the year, these two days are on different topics, unusually for our programme which otherwise follows a pattern of offering of a pair of days on each topic.

So while tomorrow replaces the Saturday postponed in January, yesterday was a new topic and also brought a number of new people to a Well Quiet Day. One of our first-timers had been given the day as a gift – a lovely option which you can arrange through the office in the form of a gift voucher.

These events always prove to be a great escape for people and chance to really encounter God, and as we said goodbye at the end of the day it was clear it had been a really powerful time on the subject of ‘Living on the ledge – discovering God as a rock and refuge in a place of insecurity’.

Whether people had been before or were first-timers, it had definitely been a memorable day and I’ll share just a few comments from the feedback forms in response to the question, ‘What did you enjoy most about the day?’

‘Having the space and time to meet with God quietly.’

‘Time to pray – and as always the ‘love on a plate’ that is lunch.’

‘The teaching and the fellowship.’

‘Just being in the atmosphere of peace, tranquillity and calm – away from all the pressures and strains and being held safe and secure.’

‘The opportunity to listen, pray, partake and cry.’
