2020 Programme

We are now running these as virtual events using Zoom videoconference for the duration of COVID 19 restrictions.

This will allow you to join by either:

  • Using a laptop, tablet or smartphone with good internet. You will be able to see and hear the speaker and interact with the other people in the session.

Or

  • Using a normal phone, you will be able to hear the speaker and interact with the other people in the session.

Just use the website links shown below for each event. We are asking you to pre-register, which simply means signing up with your name and email address, to keep the sessions more secure. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. We have reduced the length of the sessions and will aim to have one or two short breaks, so you won’t be sitting in front of a screen for more than about 45 minutes at a time.

To book your place on any of these events please follow the registration link in the programme below.

If you have any questions please email cockfosterscs@rcdow.org.uk

We’ll be adding events for the second half of the year, so please check the website or let us know if you would like to receive updates by email. You can also request a poster size version of the programme for a noticeboard.

Saturday 11th July

9.30 am – 1 pm

Finding God in Nature

Jonathan Males

The Christian faith has a complicated relationship with the natural world; having “dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air.. and over all the wild animals” (Gen 1;26-28) hasn’t worked out so well if you look at the current environmental crisis.  We will explore how to reconcile contemporary environmental science, Christian faith, and the the direct experience of the benefits of time in the natural world. This workshop will run in three parts. We will start with a Zoom workshop to explore the role of the natural world in Christian spirituality. Then we will take a break to allow everyone to go outside and experience nature directly, applying some of the principles from the introduction. Those who wish can meet for a socially distanced walk in Trent Park, otherwise this can take place in your own garden or nearby park. Afterwards we will all meet in a final zoom session to come together and reflect.

Jonathan is an executive coach and spiritual director who helps people in all walks of life to know themselves better and to grow into their full humanity.
