Online Christian Retreats via Zoom
Offering a space for Christians to explore and deepen faith…
Seek ‘life in all its fullness’…
CREATED & LED BY DONNA WORTHINGTON, all retreats are an invitation to be rejuvenated and affirmed in faith, to know Christ better and to open up sacred space in order to listen to the Holy Spirit and experience a living spirituality that consoles, challenges and inspires. Varied methods enable Christians to deepen their own discipleship and travel on in their faith journeys (presentation, theological discussion, stillness, prayer, creative sessions, images, music etc).
Courses and training are also offered so individuals and groups can explore Scripture, prayer and faith’s themes and feel equipped to become prayer leaders in their own communities.

ADVENT, A LESSER LENT
Events to encourage the prayerful journey of staying in your cave…
When we enter Advent in November, in the Celtic Christian tradition of these islands, Advent was seen as a lesser Lent. In light of lock-downs and social distancing, why not use the opportunity to see the beautiful season of Advent as a time of waiting, going into one’s inner cave of the heart, contemplation, inner spiritual work and prayer?
Here is a programme of events for November / December:
THE TIGER & THE TREE OF LIGHT
At the heart of the night, the Tiger walks through the moonlight, the wounded-healer, approaching the bleeding Tree of Light…
We explore this myth and its treasures.
NOTICING THE BODY’S WISDOM & MINDFULNESS | This retreat is an opportunity to learn from the body’s wisdom by becoming aware of what the body holds and the deeper knowledge it can offer. We will also attend to and respect the body through the practices of mindfulness. Techniques used are offered in a safe, gentle and boundaried manner, respecting the privacy of participants.
A compelling, passionate witness to life lived in the Risen Christ, Paul a dedicated builder of Christian community and writer of Scripture, lived deeply from the ground of his deep faith. After his dramatic and life-changing conversion, he spent time in the desert – so we begin by following Paul into the desert during Lent and then seek to explore his challenging and profound experience of faith. This is a 4 week course and participants should attend all sessions if they are able to.
Thursdays 6.30-9pm March 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th
