Pales Annual Lecture 2018
Sep 29 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

The Use of Silence

We are delighted to announce that Dominic Walker has agreed to deliver this year’s

Pales Annual Lecture Saturday 2.30pm 29th September 2018

Silence lies at the heart of the Christian spiritual tradition and is the major feature of Quaker worship.  Come and explore how to use silence and discover how it draws us closer to God and one another.

Dominic is a member of an Anglican Religious Community called the Oratory of the Good Shepherd that seeks to combine a consecrated life of prayer with pastoral ministry. He has worked as a parish priest, superior of his community and a bishop in England and Wales. He now looks after an allotment and his dog but says he is still learning to pray and he is still fascinated about God.

After the lecture Dominic has agreed to respond to questions.

Tea and cakes will be provided with an opportunity for informal conversations
