Retiring Well

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.
