Retreat, holiday and conference programme

Gateway to Joy

Monday 26th Feb - Friday 2nd March

In Lent we are invited to respond more fully to God’s invitation to love, life and joy. If you are wondering what is might be like to take part in a retreat that includes silence, this is what our lovely guest Louisa said about her recent silent retreat "For me silent retreat was such a relief away from my busy life. I was humbled by the realisation that I can only manage 30 secs of silent meditation at a time. But I was relieved to learn that silent prayer is just like sunbathing. I only need to let God's loving attention and affirmation get to me, like the sun's rays. Little by 30 second little I will be aglow with change! And the folks at Scargill love you and feed you and listen. I will definitely come again."
