An Open Invitation

As we remember the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's challenge about the need for change, Clare Downing ( Moderator of the United Reformed Church Wessex Synod ) will help us consider how God might be calling us as individuals, members of churches and part of our local community to be re-formed in our time.

During the day, there will be a mixture of input and quiet time for personal reflection.
