One in three women in the UK will have had an abortion by the time they are 45. Some women and their partners may have come to terms with this experience, but others still feel deeply affected, even if this took place many years ago and was felt to be the right decision at the time. Often their abortion experience is never far from their minds, and yet they cannot resolve the feelings themselves.

This retreat gives the opportunity for those affected by abortion to explore the emotions involved. They will be gently guided through a support programme , in a small group setting with up to 5 other participants. Previous attendees have found post abortion support groups to be to be life changing and healing times.

OPEN ( is a ministry of CARE and aims to create an environment within churches where unintended pregnancy and post abortion concerns can be shared with grace and compassionate understanding.
