Retirement is a time of significant change for people. There are many ways to move towards and then into retirement and many issues to think though. The retreat will be a mix of presentation from the front, interactive exercises in twos, small groups and plenary, as well as opportunity for time alone to think, plan and pray. Participants may also book a half hour one to one session with Helen during the retreat.

Come alone, with your spouse or with a colleague at a similar stage of the journey towards retirement. The content is equally suitable for those from the secular workplace and those in Christian ministry and charities

We will cover:
o Challenges & opportunities of retirement
o What the Bible says about growing old and retirement
o Discovering God`s calling in retirement
o Taking a gap
o A balanced lifestyle: pacing life & use of time
o Supporting others & supporting yourself
o Self-worth & identity without paid employment
o Staying or moving
o Opportunities & tips for volunteering

If you wish to stay longer, or start your stay earlier, please contact us about availability.
