WALKING THE TALKING

3-7 July 2017

Living as disciples every day is a challenge to every Christian. Let's see if we can't get better at it together. This retreat provides participants with the opportunity to explore the majestic Gower peninsula on foot.

Led by Revd Stuart Bell and Pru Bell.

£309 per person, full board, residential (guaranteed single occupancy supplement £15 extra per night).

*10% discount available for individuals booking who are willing to share a twin room with another individual of the same gender.

£129 per person, non residential, includes lunch on T/W/Th and evening meals on M/T/W/Th.

Join Stuart and Pru Bell who, for over 50 years, have been Christians and seeking to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. This includes a lifetime of ordained ministry in parishes in West Wales, from the small rural parish of Llangeler to the university town of Aberystwyth.

For over 50 years Stuart and Pru Bell have been Christians and seeking to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.

It was in 1971 that Stuart and Pru Bell began their ministry in the parish of Aberaeron. Whilst their settled parish work has been exclusively in West Wales, including 25 years in Aberystwyth, they’ve also had opportunity to travel extensively internationally and to see the thrilling growth of the Christian church overseas.

The church of St. Michael’s at one time had 18 people serving the Lord overseas in some kind of mission capacity and pastoral concern for those people involved travelling to the near continent [France and Spain] but also further afield to Thailand, Kygyzstan, China and sub-Saharan Africa.  

Pru has had her own ministry as a JP for 22 years, and has more recently co-authored the exciting account of her great grand mother’s journey from St. Davids in Pembrokeshire to Xinzhou in China at the end of the 19th century.  The book covers a history of 150 years and brings the reader right up to date with the modern church of China.

Whilst travel is a constant pleasure [including visits to Switzerland, Jerusalem, Tanzania and Zambia by the end of the year] nothing compares with the company of two lively grandsons.
