Advent Silent Retreat

22–26 November 2021 (Mon–Fri)

“I am making everything new!” How can we live more fully in the light of God’s Presence? We will explore how we can pay deep attention to the present, recalling stories of God’s salvation and taking hold of His promises for the future. We will use ancient patterns of prayer and reflection, and will spend time letting the light of Christ shine on some of the hidden places of our souls so that He can restore us and give us fresh hope for the adventure.  This will be a silent retreat but there will be opportunity for sharing and prayer.  It would be a good introduction to taking extended ‘time out’ for personal reflection for anyone who has never had a retreat before.

The House will be in silence from Monday evening to Thursday lunchtime. 

Who's speaking?
