RE:connect Drop in Day

Upcoming Events

RE:connect Drop in Day

|

RE:connect - enter the Network to explore the interconnectivity of the world through hands on and thought provoking activities, exercises and reflections.

RE:focus - an interactive prayer space which can be used to follow up on some of the ideas explored in RE:connect - this can be used as a drop in or if you would like to book a time slot for your group to have exclusive use of the prayer space you can.

RE:connect is something that we have been running for secondary schools for three years now and last year we opened it up to churches and youth groups for the first time.

There will be no charge for the RE:connect and RE:focus experience but if you would like to make a donation that would be most welcome.

We use the word 'vocation' to describe a call from God to follow His Son Jesus Christ in the way of life he shows us in the gospels. For some people, this call is to devote their life to serving God in a radical and all-encompassing way as a member of a Religious Order.
