A Journey into Silence

Leaders: Revd Peter Doodes and Fiona Bower

It’s not totally silent (!) but please read on. Silence is a rare commodity in today’s world, but the need for silence in order to contact and communicate with God is a fact, and here that opportunity will arise. You will be doing all of this without the constant pressures of an ever nagging news media doing their calculated level best to wrench your thoughts and minds from what is really important in your life. Therefore, so we can all take advantage of what we have learned, each day of this retreat will be a separate journey into silence. There will be a short Celtic Worship service after breakfast with a Daily Reflection on one of the four parts of creation, the Creation of the Natural World, the Creation of ourselves, the Creation of our Christian Journey and the Creation of our Christian Aims. This service will always be at a specific time and we will leave in silence.
