Foxhill Prayer 2018
Jesus, our peace,
You call your friends
to come for a little while
into a quiet and restful space.
In our desert,
you bring us to green pastures.
In the storm,
you lead us by still waters.
May all who come,
to this house of prayer
find in Foxhill:
a door of welcome,
a table of friendship,
a room of safety,
a garden of beauty,
a corner of silence –
in the love of God
who makes a home among us.
Stop, Look and Listen Days
Held on the second Monday of the month, these mini retreats are a chance to step back from the busyness of everyday life and listen to what God is saying to you.
Each day starts with coffee at 9.30am and ends with tea at 3.30pm.
£22 - includes lunch and refreshments.
‘The Blue Remembered Hills’ – a time of personal reflection and reminiscence.
We will gently reflect on events in life which may have brought us joy or sadness- and to see the point and purpose of these events in our own faith journeys.
There will be ample time for quiet reflection, and there will be no pressure to participate in any 'uncomfortable' discussions.
'For God so loved the world..." John 3:16 stripped down.
We shall endeavour a fresh and detailed look at this verse to encourage and to challenge in order to deepen our understanding of the will and purpose of God.

We began the new year with a special Epiphany Carol Service, giving thanks for the past work of the Friends of Foxhill. During the service, Andrew Rudd was commissioned to be the Chair of the newly named 'Foxhill Supporters'.
Here, Andrew introduces himself, along with his vision for Foxhill and the Supporters:
'Hello, I’m Andrew Rudd, and it is a huge privilege for me to chair the Foxhill Supporters. With Wendy, my wife, I have lived in Frodsham, close to Foxhill, for more than forty years.
Foxhill has always been a significant place for us. At this house I have found times of deep refreshment in retreats and quiet days. I have been astonished by the cries of buzzards in flight, or the beauty of light through Autumn trees. I have learned from theologians and watched the sun rise over deep snow.
But Foxhill is changing. To survive in these challenging times it needs to grow, not just in the services and resources it provides, but in its depth. I have an image in my mind of a great crowd - of all the many different people who come to Foxhill. They find it a place of significant encounter – with God and with others, and they go away changed. Maybe they leave Foxhill challenged, refreshed, provoked, renewed. Maybe they go into the world with greater compassion. And so an invisible stream of goodness flows from this place, making a deep impact in the lives of thousands of people.
In order for this to happen, the holy space of Foxhill needs to be sustained. It needs people who give their time and energy, people who pray, circles of Supporters who hold Foxhill, so that it may hold those people safe who come through the doors. These Supporters – formerly known as Friends of Foxhill – are vital. They commit to pray, or to give, or to volunteer. The prayer I have written for 2018 summarises this vision. It would be wonderful if you could join this group in this special work for God.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NIV)
