As in previous years we are privileged to welcome Maggie Le-Roy and Judy Cannan from the Diocesan Retreat Centre in Cyprus, visiting us for a week in October as part of one of their regular ministry trips around the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf.
They will have a ‘taster day’ for those unfamiliar with personal retreats to show you how to use the time you set aside on a retreat – this will be in our St. Nicholas Church, Fujeirah on Saturday 15th from 10am-12.30pm. There’s a nice cafe nearby so you could make a day of it and explore Fujeirah – I like Fujeirah Fort and the corniche .
At Christ Church Jebel Ali Maggie and Judy will be teaching at our 9.30am service at Christ Church on Friday 14th October where they will be talking to us about ‘how do we know when God is talking to us’ – the gift of discernment.
To reinforce their teaching, Maggie and Judy will be leading our three Home Groups during the following week, which is a great opportunity for you to learn more – and perhaps to connect with one of these groups close to where you live.
If you are not in a Home Group but would like to come along (and bring a friend too!) to one of them to hear more from Maggie and Judy, please just get in touch with the relevant contact person, or call the Church Office on 04 884 5436.
