9th July 2018
Stop, Look and Listen Day, Encountering God  – Led by the Revd John Kirkland

We shall be looking at several encounters with God in scripture, noting that they occurred at God’s initiative, but seeking to discover anything that we can do to be receptive to these kinds of encounters for ourselves. We shall look at Isaiah who encountered the holiness of God; Elijah who encountered God in discouragement; Job who encountered God in suffering. What do we learn about God from those encounters and how do they encourage us to seek God for ourselves?

These mini retreats are a chance to step back from your busyness, and listen to what God is saying to you. Each day starts with coffee at 9.30am and ends with tea at 3.30pm. £22 per person- includes lunch and refreshments.

The Harvest of our Lives Led by Canon Veronica Hydon

A creative weekend using a variety of art and craft materials to explore and celebrate different skills each of us have discovered, practised and developed during our lifetimes in a range of work and leisure contexts, and sharing how God has blessed and encouraged us along the way.

This weekend will be contemplative as well as companionable. A time for greater appreciation of our own achievements as labourers in God’s Harvest.

22 September 2018
Ministry at Work –  with Mo Trudell.

As Autumn sets in and we begin to think about winter we will use Rowan Williams book ‘Being Disciples’ to review and refresh our faith together. This day will be a mix of studying core truths as set out by Rowan, walking and listening to God in nature and taking away a faith uplift to help “be” the Christian presence at work. It will be useful for delegates to bring the Rowan Williams book Being Disciples, the essentials of the Christian life.

£27.50pp including lunch & refreshments


9th- 10th November 2018
Living With Grief Led by Philippa and Graeme Skinner

The event is suitable for anyone who has been bereaved at least 6 months.
£95pp including all meals & en-suite accommodation

Individually Guided Retreat Led by Chester Diocesan Spirituality Group

Take time to rest and relax before the busyness of Christmas and remember what it’s all in aid of. An Individually guided Retreat provides space to listen, to find refreshment, and perhaps to put our lives in a new perspective.

We will be in silence on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each person will have a prayer guide to support them through this time and provide suggestions for prayer.
