Valley Paths

Leader: Gill Hancock

We all go through difficult experiences in life (the death of a loved one, doubts, fears, depression, trauma, ongoing physical pain, past mistakes holding us back to name but a few). The temptation can be to `grit our teeth` to get through those tough times, pick ourselves up and carry on. We may not have had opportunity or permission to work through any emotional, spiritual or mental impact the crisis has left us with. The Valley Path`s course enables us to take time with God, to reflect on those past events, seek a better understanding and more importantly to go deeper with Him and gain new layers of healing.

Residential price: £490.00
Non-residential price: £295.00

Refilling Whilst We Pour Out

The retreat is for people who work in Christian charities, missions, ministries or churches and also those in caring professions and roles such as medics, teachers, social workers and parents - people who spend their lives pouring out to others and sometimes forget to look after themselves.

The Hidden Life of Trees

Leader: Brigid Main

Researchers see and hear trees communicating, helping and supporting each other via root systems and fungi. How can the trees help us deepen our prayer life and our own support systems? Come and spend a weekend in the beauty of autumn at Penhurst, discovering together how we can experience some of the underlying connectedness of all things in God`s creation and being open to God`s wild hospitality.
