Have you retired in the last year or are planning to do so in the next couple of years? Are you hoping for a fruitful, enjoyable and fulfilling retirement? Retirement is a time of significant change with many issues to think though. Retreat topics will include: exploring your calling in retirement, leaving work well, taking a gap, identity, supporting others and yourself, pacing life, more time at home for singles and marrieds, moving home, developing your devotional life. The retreat content is suitable for those in secular work and in Christian ministry and charities who are finishing full-time work in the next 12-24 months. Come alone, with your spouse or with a colleague at a similar stage of the journey towards retirement.

The retreat will be led by Helen Calder, the founder of Retiring Well. It will include a mix of presentation, interactive exercises and opportunity for time alone to think, plan and pray. Each participant will receive copies of the two Retiring Workbooks written by Helen: "Preparing for Retirement" and "New Patterns of Living in Retirement".

By the end of the course participants will:
- have had opportunity to personally consider some of the implications of retirement from full-time work.
- have been inspired to start praying and planning for their own purposeful, fulfilled retirement.
- have been given resources to help them on their continuing retirement journey.
