At the core of the retreat will be heart-felt gathered worship. Such worship is indispensable to living out the full gospel during the working week. It facilitates investment in our work, in part because it has a deep character-forming role. Although this truth is lost in secular attempts to promote ethics in business, it forms the bedrock of this retreat.
Given this background, we’re delighted that Andy Flannagan will be joining us. This former medical doctor is a gifted singer-songwriter who has risen to become one of the UK's most creative and prophetic singer-songwriters and social activists. He is first and foremost a story-teller, weaving hope and pain into songs that soar with beautiful, poignant melodies that betray his Irish roots. There is a passion for global justice in Andy’s songs that is reflected in their earthy lyrical content. He does so in a way that embodies and models whole-life discipleship.
We were thrilled to close last year's Retreat with the world premiere of Andy's video song We Seek Your Kingdom, which subsequently went viral. We look forward to equally passionate worship with Andy when we gather in May.
