Waiting list

Donna Worthington will lead a one day retreat on The Woman at the Well - an invitation to journey to the well, to Christ the Living Water.

At Jacob’s well, Jesus broke strict rules of his time in order to reach a woman who was struggling with past relationships, exclusion and isolation; he listened to her in a non-judgmental way, saw her huge potential and she was transformed, finding her own confidence and her own voice.

We will explore this intriguing Gospel passage, which helps to illuminate women’s inner soul journeys and offers an invitation to walk to the ‘well’, to Christ the One who restores us. The day will include a short theatre piece, imagery, presentation, discussion of the Gospel passage, Ignatian guided prayer and a labyrinth prayer walk based on the beautiful journey to the well.
