Retreats 

 

23rd September - Mindfulness of God and Personal Transformation

Hosted by Shaun Lambert 

10am - 4pm

The day is suitable for anyone who wishes to explore this further as well as understand something about mindfulness for health from a Christian perspective. Shaun is a Baptist minister, part of the New Wine leader's network and Premier Mind and Soul Network. He says: "Mindfulness for health is much in the news, but we can also cultivate mindfulness of God to bring about transformation into Christlikeness."

 

12th October - Fascination of St Francis

Hosted by the Revd. Pamela Soult

9.30am - 3.30pm     

£27.50 includes lunch and refreshments.

The day will include times of quiet reflection and opportunities to enjoy the grounds, before concluding with prayer. Pamela says: "On the day after the Feast of St Francis, we will look at some aspects of his life. We will consider his belief in verbal evangelism and the power of his community to witness the love of Christ and the Kingdom of God."

 

1st - 3rd November - Thriving Through Change

Hosted by Bishop Chris Edmondson

£145 includes en-suite room, all meals and refreshments

Many people find dealing with change difficult, whether at work, in personal circumstances, health or attitude- especially when it's forced on us. Using a variety of means including Biblical reflection, discussion, prayer ministry and personal space, Bishop Chris will show how we cannot just survive change, but thrive and grow in and through the process. The retreat begins with lunch on Wednesday, and finishes after lunch on Friday.

 

24th - 26th November - Coming to Life in Advent

Hosted by Bishop Libby Lane

£145 includes en-suite room, all meals and refreshments

Using poetry, music and contemplative silence, this retreat draws on scripture and imagination to help us see ourselves and engage in our world afresh. Bishop Liby says: "As the embryo Jesus 'quickens' in his mother's womb, we attend to our own coming to life as children of God and to our own awakening to the world made new." The retreat begins with dinner on Friday, and finishes after lunch on Sunday.
