THE CALL OF THE WILD,
THE FEEL OF THE HOLY
A day conference on Celtic Christianity led by Michael Mitton and Russ Parker
Friday 15th October 10am to 4pm
Russ and Michael are both engaged in freelance ministries that include speaking and writing. They also together lead pilgrimages to sites of the early Celtic church in Britain and Ireland, including bringing a group of South African pilgrims to Cornwall in 2019. They will be sharing insights they have gained from the experiences of these pilgrimages and their conviction that the vitality and witness of this early church has much to teach us for our ministry and mission today. The day will include talks, opportunity for discussion and prayer.
