Journeying beyond the familiar with St Brendan: online retreat 25th – 27th September

We still have places available on this online, weekend retreat. Further information is below and our online retreats landing page is HERE

Irish monks used boats called coracles to travel on the ocean in search of a ‘desert place’ in which they found God in a new way. One of the most famous of these monks is Brendan, who set out from the West coast of Ireland out into the vast wilderness of the ocean with a small boat and a simple prayer, ‘Christ of the Mysteries, can I trust you on the sea?’ During this retreat, we’ll explore something of what it is means to journey beyond the familiar and embrace a call to risky living, which will resonate for many of us in the world we are inhabiting now. Part of this exploration will include a creative activity that will help us consider what it is to journey with God beyond the comfortable and familiar into the unknown and unchartered.
