Festival 2016

Our 2016 festival The Rhythm of Life was held at High Leigh Conference Centre in Hertfordshire from 21-23 October. The weekend was led by musician, educator, writer, composer and Anglican priest Philip Roderick, founder of the Quiet Garden Movement and of Contemplative Fire. We were led on a journey towards God in sound and stillness, movement and meaning. The weekend also included an evening with worship leader and songwriter Dave Bilbrough.
