On Monday 16th March 2020 the UK government issued instructions that people should avoid all non-essential travel and contact with others to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Now in August as we move forward in negotiating the Covid 19 pandemic, govt restrictions remain in place to protect our local communities. The current UK guidelines are get tested and socially isolate for 14 days if you are experiencing symptoms. Regional guidelines may differ, please see gov.uk for the full guidelines in your region.
There have been many requests recently for private/individually guided retreats, space and time is wanted and very much needed to gather resources again. Because of this we have changed our planned themed retreats in November and December to reflect this. We are offering an opportunity for space and reflection in the form of private/Individually Guided Retreats. You will be wrapped in a rhythm of prayer, good food and fellowship, come just as you are. Retreatants may join in with the rhythm of prayer or instead take time to rest, walk or read knowing that you are being prayed for while you are with us. One to one sessions of listening/Spiritual Direction, Guided Prayer, Ignatian Spirituality Groups will be available on each day of the Individually Guided Retreats by arranging this in advance.
At this time of world-wide upheaval and spiritual shaking/challenge to the way we live our lives, I pray that you will know how high and wide and deep God's love is for you and that you are held in the palm of God's hand, precious in God's sight.
For all enquiries complete an enquiry form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly with your enquiry. We are also delighted to be able to encourage NHS staff with 50 % off the cost of your retreat via a bursary application.
God bless you and all those that you pray and care for, now and always. Revd. D Hamilton-Grey (Retreat Director)
