Online retreats – a sacred place

As a community here at Scargill we are currently studying about different sacred spaces we inhabit. In lockdown we have heard consistently that our online presence has been a ‘sacred space’ for our guests and friends. As lockdown eases and we can welcome guests and friends to stay with us physically we want to still offer a vibrant online programme. 

To enable us to substantially improve our online presence we are planning to invest in improvements to our technology and digital capabilities. This will continue to ensure that people experience Scargill Movement online as a sacred space, where they can be part of an online community. Allchurches Trust have given us a generous grant to help us launch this new project.

Dave Lucas our Operations & Project Leader who put together the grant request, and will run the project of digital improvements says, ‘I am delighted with the Allchurches Trust grant from the Hope Beyond project, and I believe that is what we can continue to offer with their financial help – hope beyond lockdown!’ 

Allchurches Trust is one of the UK’s largest grant-making charities and gave more than £23 million to churches, charities and communities in 2020. Its funds come from its ownership of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group. Visit their website: more information.
