Celebrating Later Life – a Jubilee Tea Party (Ilkley) @ The Briery Retreat Centre
Jun 12 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
A Jubilee Tea Party, with opportunity to reflect on the Queen and later life
Join us to celebrate our Queen and her long life over a scrumptious tea; as we admire her dedication to duty, clear purpose, humour and perseverance, (founded in no small part on her Christian faith), we will also reflect on our own journeys and the opportunities and joys open to us in later life. There is a suggested offering of £10 per head.

Please ring The Briery on 01943 607287 to book your place. Thank you.

Losses and Later Life – discussion event online (tbc) @ On Zoom
Jul 12 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
How do we face and make sense of changes and diminishment in our later years.

As we get older we can gradually experience a series of ‘losses’ – an increase in health issues, a decrease in independence, some loss of ability to do what we used to do, loss of friends, possibly moving out of your home, loss of memory and so on.

How do we hold onto and deepen our true identity, allow loss to be part of our jigsaw, find new purposes and resilience in the context of this part of our spiritual and practical journey?

Join us online (tbc) for a short talk followed by time in break out groups to discuss and share with each other, closing with a reflection and prayer.

This is a partnership event with Leeds Church Institute.
