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.

Residential price: £298.00
Non-residential price: £140.00

Boundaries

Leader: Mandy Callf

Does your life often seem out of control, at everyone’s beck and call, that you find it difficult to say ‘No’? Do some people intimidate you into doing what you don’t want to do, haven’t the gifting to do, haven’t the time to do and make you feel guilty? Maybe church and even God feel demanding. Does all this leave you feeling exhausted , stressed, frustrated, angry, on a short fuse……? Sound familiar? ....

Seeing the light in life [through photography]

Leader: Steve Radley

The gift of photography can enable you to discover your own life and surroundings in new ways. Photography is taken from the Greek words meaning ‘to draw’ and ‘light’, so literally means, drawing with light. The retreat will use light as a metaphor for life and explore ways of using the camera in a contemplative way to help us see light and life in its many forms. We will also explore the story of our images and discover what the images we are drawn to may help us discover about our own life.

Residential price: £235.00
Non-residential price: £145.00
