Quiet Waters looks for new couple to join team 

AndrewRuthTait450Quiet Waters Christian retreat house on the Suffolk/ Norfolk border is looking to employ a new permanent couple to work with them and has news of two fund-raising events.

 
Warden Andrew Tait said: “The present staff team are with us on a short term basis and the Trustees feel that now is the time that we need to begin looking for another couple who feel specifically called to full-time ministry at Quiet Waters and so we are now seeking applicants for this role.

“If you and your spouse believe that God is calling you to serve His people in the area of hospitality and retreats or you know of a couple who may be being called, please do get in contact with us at mail@quietwaters.org.uk .” 
 
Quiet Waters is holding its summer craft and produce fair on Saturday July 19 at its premises at Flixton Road, Bungay, NR35 1PD.

There will be crafts for sale, home baking and other products. Proceeds from the sale of crafts and produce will go towards the work of Quiet Waters.  Refreshments will be available, donations for which will go to the Waveney Food Bank and there is the opportunity to wander in the venue’s gardens.
 
Andrew has been getting into training for a 400-mile sponsored cycle ride, right across the country from Treginnis, the most westerly place in Wales, to Lowestoft, the most easterly place in England
 
The five-day ride will take place from September 1 to 5 and Andrew is hoping to raise £6000 to enable the conversion of the static caravan at Quiet Waters to permanent staff accommodation. Any extra funds raised will be used for the maintenance and development of the house and grounds.
 
If you would be willing to help raise sponsorship for his ride amongst your friends please e-mail andrew@quietwaters.org.uk and he will be very happy to send you a sponsorship form, or click here to make a direct donation online.
