Our retreats and events – online, at Nether Springs and elsewhere
The following retreats will be running ONLINE:
- ‘Blessed to be a Blessing‘ from 10th-12th September (Friday to Sunday), led by Roy Searle, who explores how the God of blessing created us to be channels of blessing to people and places, in every place where we are…
- ‘Creative Saturday Morning ‘ – 18th September, 9am – 1.30pm – space to pause, for a few hours, from the activity of daily life and enter into a quiet stillness where we can listen to God and to our lives. There will be an optional creative activity to help you do this.
- And for those who are wanting to know more about Northumbria Community and are considering journeying more closely with us, we have a ‘Community Introduction,’ from 20th-23rd September (Monday to Thursday), which will run in North American time (CDT). It will involve input from our three Community Overseers, as well as Companions in Community, based in North America/Canada.
- An individually guided retreat – ‘Listening to the Heartbeat of God,’ 27th-30th September which offers the opportunity to receive daily, one-to-one spiritual accompaniment and personalised spiritual exercises.
As well as daily input, for all of our online retreats, retreatants will have the opportunity to join in with our monastic rhythm of four-fold prayers, which help us hold the space for us to be transformed, through our encounters with God. And we also have twice-daily ‘kettle on’ spaces, hosted by members of our Welcome and Hospitality team, as valuable ‘places of informal connection’ for those who would like to join in.
And these retreats will take place at NETHER SPRINGS:
Our new-format, five-day retreats involve both inner pilgrimage – a journey of inner work, silence, study, peace and rest and an opportunity for the ‘Heart alone with God’ staying full-board in an ensuite room – and outer pilgrimage, a chance to engage with the Celtic heritage of Northumberland.
