Explore what journeying through Advent looks like when viewed through the lens of Celtic spirituality – an adventurous journey of discovery, hope, transformation and a reminder that God breaks into ordinary, everyday life. The Celtic Saints had an appreciation of the seasons of the year and wove into their life and work an awareness of God and the sacred in the midst of ordinary life. In this, the darkest time of year, echoing much of the darkness enveloping the world in these changing times, we are invited to look again at the story that speaks of light, hope and peace. A story of God’s love for the world, a transformative story that touches the hearts of lives of all who encounter its central figure, Christ.

Our retreat will be led by Roy Searle, (no stranger to Scargill) who was one of the founders of the Northumbria Community and a former President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. He is well known as a speaker, retreat leader, writer and leadership mentor.
