    Cor et Lumen Christi 8-10 May

    What would happen if we really gave ourselves to God's presence with deep expectation? 
    How often do we make the space to ENCOUNTER Him?

    We are please to let you know about our next weekend: 'ENCOUNTER'.

    The weekend will include input to help us grow in expectation and hunger for the living God and opportunities to really soak in the divine presence by giving our time to Him in a variety of ways. 

    We will be led by the Cor et Lumen Christi Community, St Cuthbert’s. Members of the community have a wide range of experience of bringing people into the tangible presence of God, including: Prayer Ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit, Ignatian Spirituality, Healing Ministry, Praise and Worship, Exhortational Preaching and Prophetic Ministry.

    Towards a New Pentecost - Cor at Lumen Christi

     Towards a New Pentecost : 20th - 22nd March 2015 includes world renowned speaker and author Michelle Moran. 

    ***Meals will be included at this weekend!***

    Every Pope since the beginning of Vatican II has called the Church to desire and prepare for a New Pentecost. This is an astonishing vision if we consider its full meaning. This conference will do exactly that. Starting with the vision of the Popes and the origins of their vision, we will gain a deeper understanding of what is meant by a New Pentecost and then look at how this affects us personally. We will then explore ways in which we can prepare and dispose ourselves to a new era of grace in the Church and the world.

    • Is my vision for a New Pentecost the same as the Pope's?
    • What will a New Pentecost look like?
    • Are there already signs of a New Pentecost?
    • What can I do to prepare for a New Pentecost?
    • How can I open myself to the gifts of God and experience His love?

    The conference will include inspired preaching and teaching, prayer ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit, as well as extended times of joyful praise, Adoration and the Holy Mass.
