Creative Journalling Advent Retreat Day – Saturday 30th November 2019 10am-4pm

Blackhall, Edinburgh

Creative Bible Journalling is a great way to deepen your relationship with God, increase your understanding of Biblical imagery and enjoy using colour and image as you study His Word. Pictures or images are important.  The Bible is full of them! They can show us new things. Exciting visions and ideas begin to open up. We see new angles on ourselves and God. Creative Bible Journalling is a chance to play as well as pray and the two are a powerful combination.

Come and explore Advent themes through creative journalling – the retreat provides everything you need including a journal, study notes, a room full of craft materials, demonstrations, morning refreshments, a simple lunch and a kit of supplies to take home. The retreat is led by Revd, Jane MacLaren. Cost: £65 per person. Places must be booked in advance. Email Jane@creativejournalling.co.uk

The Kit consists of  an A5 journal with blank pages, Bible study notes with journalling prompts, and a variety of creative supplies to get you started including stickers, washi tape and sticky notes for key verses, prayers and thoughts. Join the chat on the Facebook group and I’ll be posting some You Tube videos nearer the time with suggestions of how to use your kit and how to approach the journalling. Kits cost £20 each plus £3.50 p&p and I’ll be posting them during the last week in November 2019. To order Email Jane@creativejournalling.co.uk
