Faith & Environment Quiet Day: let the coastlands be glad

22 July 2016


Saturday, 8th October 2016, from 10am–4pm, at Far Ings Nature Reserve & Education Centre, near Barton-upon-Humber.

The Revd Leslie Batty has issued the following invitation to a Quiet Day planned for later this year:

Do you enjoy the wild places where land and water meet, whether on the seashore, along the banks of an estuary or by a reed-fringed lake? Do you wonder how we can be wise stewards of God’s creation, reconciling a multitude of human demands with the needs of the natural environment? Spend a reflective day with us at Far Ings Nature Reserve, on the south bank of the Humber estuary, where we will undertake some exercises in observing the beauty of nature and exploring the relationship between God, people and the rest of creation.

Cost: £13.75 (includes coffee or tea and biscuits on arrival and before departure, and a drink to have with your own packed lunch).
