Holy Week at Sarum 2016 – Reconciliation: The Point of the Cross

  • Course Dates: Mon 21 March 2016, 9:30 am to Thu 24 March 2016, 10:00 am

During these days you will be journeying through Holy Week viewing it as a journey towards reconciliation.

The programme has been designed to encourage three levels of reflection through the lens of reconciliation. First, there will be reflections around the events of Holy Week. The second level of reflection will be around reconciliation and society. At the third level, participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own inner journeys of reconciliation.

These days may form the basis of a retreat or can be taken as individual days of personal reflection. During your stay you may also wish to visit Salisbury Cathedral and partake in their Holy Week programme. The College chapel, library and meeting rooms will be open for private reflection and prayer.

Each day will begin at 9.30am with a service of prayer and biblical reflection and will end with a gathering at 4.30pm to reflect together on the day. Refreshments will be served after each session of the day. Lunch for participants will be served daily at 1pm, evening supper for residential participants will be at 6.30pm.
