9.00am    Wake up & Shake up LIVE*
First thing in the morning we will dance and sing a song of joy ... especially for our ARK children and those young at heart.

9.30am     Morning Prayer
Morning prayer is intended and arranged to sanctify the morning. St. Basil the Great gives an excellent description of this character in these words: "It is said in the morning in order that the first stirrings of our mind and will may be consecrated to God and that we may take nothing in hand until we have been gladdened by the thought of God, as it is written: 'I was mindful of God and was glad' (Ps 77:4)."

10.00am  David Wells: Jesus, Mary and Joseph

We are delighted to have David sharing some reflections with us today David was educated at English Martyrs


School in Leicester, Keele University, and later in Liverpool, where he trained as a teacher. In 1994 he was awarded a


Master of Philosophy degree from Nottingham University. He began his career as a teacher in Ilkeston and went on to


work for the Catholic Education Service in London, before becoming an Adult Education Adviser. He worked in the


Diocese of Nottingham and then in the Diocese of Plymouth. He is a guest lecturer at three universities. 

As a public speaker David has had the privilege of leading and teaching all sorts of groups. From speaking to eight thousand young people at Wembley Stadium and similar numbers of teachers in the USA, to small groups of men at parish breakfasts or just a few volunteers in a parish meeting.

Join this LIVE session where we will listen to pre-recorded videos and have an opportunity for small group discussions.

1.30pm    Coffee & catch up
A social drop-in with no agenda to touch base and have a catch-up.
At 2pm a group will split off for discussions on the morning's input (please join before 2 to be part of this group discussion).

2.00pm  Workshop: Icon painting with Frances


5.30pm   Evening Prayer (Vespers)
Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfils Jesus' command to "pray always" (Luke 18:1; see also 1 Thessalonians 5:17). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world. 
6.00pm   Cook Along
Grab the wine and take yourself to the kitchen for a cook along with Sarah C & Karen F. This year we can't share a meal together physically so it is virtual meal time! Click Here for the recipe :-) and the preparation beforehand.

7.00pm   Lectio 
Lectio Divina is a Latin term which means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. The Word of God is alive and active and will transform each of us if we open ourselves to receive what God wants to give us.

8.00pm   Social Time


9.00pm  Night Prayer
Night prayer is the last prayer of the day, said before we head to bed. The Psalms that are chosen for Night Prayer are full of confidence in the Lord. As children of the promise we gather in that confidence and end our day together. After night prayer each night a social time will continue for anyone who would like to grab a drink and stay on the call.

* These zooms will be recorded and available for those unable to attend 2 hours after the LIVE session. Please ensure your camera is switched off in these sessions if you do not wish to be recorded.
