Four Saints and a Gospel

Saturday 7 May 2022
10am to 4pm at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House

Statue of St AidenHow four crazy but holy disciples transformed Anglo Saxon England and beyond in the 7th century AD and their spiritual legacy for today.  Aidan, Cuthbert, Hild, Wilfrid and the Lindisfarne Gospels: a gentle teacher, holy recluse, feminist leader, determined evangelist and a transformative book.

Course leader: Peter Hill, retired Bishop of Barking is known to many in the diocese as he served as as curate, vicar, Diocesan Chief Executive and Archdeacon of Nottingham.

A keen sport and outdoor enthusiast, Peter is committed to the theology and practice of pilgrimage, having completed a number of long-distance pilgrim walks. In 2000 he walked from his parish of St Wilfrid Calverton to Holy Island in Northumberland, tracing the life and ministry of St Wilfrid. This stimulated his ongoing interest in the Celtic/Anglo Saxon saints of Northumbria in post Romano Britain.
