Live well – a Retreat for Anyone   At the Beacon

28 Feb–1 Mar 2020 (Fri–Sun)

Do you already know God a bit, but want to know him better?

Do you know him hardly at all, but are curious about him?

Do you know him really well and want some space to spend time with him?

If so, then this retreat could be for you!

It will include short talks, each followed by space for reflection, with suggestions as to how to use the time, and with the opportunity to talk to someone if you’d like to.

And there will be times of sharing and discussion, walking, talking and laughing together.

Come with a friend or come alone – you will be most welcome.
