We have now had time to thoroughly consider all the feedback and responses to our proposals for the coming Kenarchy Course. As well as positive responses from a good number of people there has been a lot of positive interest from folk who want to be involved but can’t quite manage the extent of time and financial commitment required for a course of the currently proposed extent.
As a result we have reshaped the course to make it more accessible to a larger number of people. Our sense is that the course will provide the relational dynamic and momentum of something so innovative that we don’t want to leave out those who seriously want to be involved, but simply couldn’t fit with the original shape.
The course will now centre around an initial introductory weekend in the Spring of 2013.
As before there will be a choice of location either at Ashburnham Place, East Sussex or in Silverdale, Lancashire. The Ashburnham weekend will now be April 5th-7th and the Silverdale course May 10th-12th. After taking part in the introductory weekend, it is hoped that some will want to continue further in this exploration, with the options of becoming part of a virtual community with people in similar situations and of participating in a follow up “Going Deeper with Kenarchy” Weekend in the Autumn of 2013. The Autumn weekends at Ashburnham will be 25th-27th October and in Silverdale 15th-17th November.
The initial weekend will have three aspects:
i) An intensive introduction to the background research, theology and implications of Jesus’ social, political and salvation agenda.
ii) An interactive and relational exploration of the ways in which we find ourselves re-positioned, challenged and changed in our expectations, lifestyle and spirituality.
iii) An opportunity to meet and enjoy some other very interesting fellow travellers.
Those who have already received information from us or corresponded with us will receive fuller email details of the revised course over the next week or so.
