Using the second station of the Cross, Christ takes up his cross, we will walk the boundary walk around the farm considering how we bear our burdens and stop for prayer and reflection. Tea in the tea rooms afterwards. Boots and warm clothing recommended.
We spend some time in silence and some time being creative, both in a prayerful context. Lunch is a choice of two vegetarian soups plus rolle followed by cheese and biscuits. Fruit, tea and coffee are available. Probably a walk after lunch to get up close and personal to some trees. Please pm me to let me know if you are coming so that we know numbers for catering purposes.
PLEASE NOTE NEW VENUE. Sorry to change at short notice but there is no parking in Bladon so we have moved our meeting to COMBE Gate. Will probably be quite wet underfoot so please come prepared with stout footwear and wrap up if cold. Walk is not strenuous and we will use paths for most of the time. The theme of 'Condemned'.
Thought that it is time to share something that reminds us that God knows best when it comes to ecosystems.
Fantastic afternoon at Banbury Hill Farm despite the wind (no rain though). £30 raised for North Oxfordshire Foodbank. Thanks to all who came (11 people plus 1 dog!).
Photos to follow.
Storm Brian will not deter us as there is a very good coffee shop at Banbury Hill Farm and walks that are not in woodland but around the farm. If the weather is awful, we will take refuge in the coffee shop and celebrate Harvest with tea and cake! See you at 2.30 in the car park.
Meet in the car park for a walk around the farm before we go into the excellent restaurant and share tea and cake. Stout footwear needed. Paths suitable for pushchairs unless very wet. Usual quiet times, poetry and reflection.
A lovely evening at Minster Lovell thinking about the openness of Summer. Although it had rained for most of the day we were blessed with a dry, albeit windy, evening with a glorious sunset. Even a kingfisher flew past and the rooks took a peek at our prayer gathering.
We are having a prayer walk around and near the ruins at Minster Lovell. Meet at 7.30pm at the car park - wear suitable clothing as it may be getting cool as the sun goes down. Bring a prayer, poem or reading if you wish to contribute.
