Watching, waiting, hoping – silent advent retreat

25–29 November 2024 (Mon–Fri)

This silent retreat for advent will help us to focus on God for the season ahead, allowing him to reveal his deepest hopes and dreams for our lives, and leading us to that place where we can bring all our longings to the One who holds the future in his hands

Who's speaking?
