This monthly meeting of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal was formed after spiritual discernment by the original core group in 1975 and it has been blessed with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit ever since. We are now one of the longest continually running Charismatic Days of Renewal in Britain.
Part of our covenant with the Lord about 30 years ago was that, should we ever have three consecutive monthly meetings without the Lord sending us someone who was new to the day, we would take it as a sign that we would have to fundamentally rethink our mission. Thanks be to God, we have never gone three months without someone new joining us.
We are dedicated to the encouragement of a personal relationship with God, via his Son, Jesus Christ, and the charismatic work of his Holy Spirit. We provide spiritual refreshment to God’s people in and around the Southern Counties through a monthly programme of:
Whilst firmly rooted in the Catholic faith we welcome and enjoy the fellowship of all Christian denominations. There is a strong ecumenical spirit about the day and we have a number of Christian speakers whose insights we value.
Please come along
You will be most welcome to join us at any monthly meeting - we have visitors from Surrey, Kent, London, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and all parts of Hampshire.There is no need to reserve a place. Admission is completely fee, but we do invite donations on the day, for those who can afford it, to cover our speakers' expenses, venue hire, and our administration and publicity costs. We do not look to make any profit from the Day.
