'Listening to God' in the Highlands

Wednesday August 24

A series of one-day ‘Listening to God’ retreats are being held in various locations around the Highlands and Islands this autumn.

The events are led by Steve Aisthorpe, the Church of Scotland’s mission development worker for the north, and Grace Penney, national director of the mission agency Interserve.

Mr Aisthorpe said: “Five years ago I initiated an annual cycle of ‘Inside Out’ retreats. While that name has been dropped, the aim remains the same: 'to encourage growth in our inner lives in ways that will transform and empower our outer lives'. The retreats model creative ways of engaging with God and each other that can be adopted and adapted for personal discipleship and congregational life. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with one of last year’s attendees commenting: ‘an oasis that I’d been looking forward to and refreshment and encouragement for the journey’.”

Each day will include insights from Scripture, times of guided meditation, reflection on personal experiences, prayer and worship.

Retreats take place in Fort William on September 17, Lairg on October 22, Orkney on November 19 and Inverness on December 3.
