Leader: Revd Andrew Tawn, Director of Clergy Development
Theme: Going Deeper
Richard Foster begins his classic A Celebration of Discipline with these words: ‘Superficiality is the curse of our age. The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem.

The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.’ This day is an
exploration of the idea of depth in the Bible and what it might mean for us to follow Jesus’ direction to ‘put out into the deep’. (Luke 5.4)
