6 Day Silent Retreat: CANCELLED

Trish Franklin —

Unfortunately this has had to be cancelled. Please watch this space for other opportunities coming up this year.

Previous information:

This ecumenical silent directed retreat is time out from the demands and expectations of daily life. It is time to enter into a focused time of prayer and listening, and time to earth our sense of identity in its Source, the love of God.

A retreat asks nothing of us, except to be real, and honour our heart’s deepest desires. Our skills and competencies can take a break. We can just be there with God in company with one another in prayer.

In being there we can pray and sleep as we need to, open ourselves to God’s transforming Word and Presence, and respond to the invitation of the Spirit of Life.

This retreat will provide contemplative worship, a daily Eucharist, reflection on prayer, spiritual direction, and space.

James Finley reminds us, “We pray not to recharge our batteries for the business of getting back to the concerns of daily life, but rather to be transformed by God so that the myths and fictions of our life might fall like broken shackles from our wrists.”
