Galilee Spirituality Centre Winter Programme

Dear Friends,

We hope you and yours are keeping well, and managing some normality at this time.  We at Galilee continue to pray for you all, and have prepared a programme for the coming weeks and months. Much of our activity will be online and our activities in the house and garden will continue to be influenced by government guidance on the COVID-19 virus. Do keep an eye on the website which will have all updates

If you experience any difficulties accessing material on the website, or Zoom meetings, or you would like some help getting started, please contact me

We look forward to welcoming you to Galilee – either online or in person in the near future.

With every good wish and Blessing,

Anne, Olive, Margaret and Mae, Galilee Team

Galilee Spirituality Centre and Quiet Garden are open

You are welcome to come for some quiet time, spiritual direction or pastoral supervision (ministers) by arrangement.  Small group meetings may take place, or small groups for reflection or retreat.

Prayer ministry: as always, you are welcome to ring Galilee to request prayer 071-966-4101.  We invite everyone to join us in prayer, wherever you are, at 6.00pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
