Nether Springs Programme

January to June 2023

We are pleased to be updating and releasing our overview of retreats and other activities across the Northumbria Community through to June 2023. The last few years have brought several learnings about what our programme could look like and, we are excited to develop it online, at Nether Springs and in person across Dispersed Community, with grateful hearts, in response to God’s leading and ongoing feedback from the many who have continued to support who we are and what we do.

It is a particular joy to be offering a wider programme at Nether Springs from January to June 2023. Alongside our regular, Inner Outer Pilgrimage retreats there will be an expanded series of led retreats; monthly, themed individually guided retreats; a series of ‘group booking’ spaces (which will include opportunities for charitable organisations/ different people groups to come and experience our hospitality within our daily rhythms), a gardening weekend and a series of quiet days.

It may well be possible to welcome guests for a quiet day at other times, so please do be in touch with the Nether Springs Office team on 01670 787645 (Monday to Friday 9.30am – 1pm) or by emailing –

Below is an overview of all that will be happening at Nether Springs from January to June, followed by more details of each retreat, or joining in opportunity. You will need to complete a booking form (links below the overview) in order to participate.

What happens after you have completed the booking form?

You should receive an acknowledgement of your booking within a few days, which will also indicate whether or not there is a place available. We ask that you also leave a ‘holding deposit’ at that time.

Suggested Donations

As a registered charity, The Northumbria Community Trust does not ask for a set fee to cover the cost of a retreat. Instead, we invite donations to support the life and work of the wider Community as a whole. As the weekly and monthly costs of running the Community are substantial, we would greatly value your integrity and generosity in this regard.

Many retreatants welcome a suggestion as to what might be an appropriate donation. This is always a difficult question to answer. However, for your guidance, the suggested donation is indicated against each retreat in the programme. We ask that you make as generous a donation as is possible without risking hardship. Through the work of the Community, the generosity of those who can afford more will benefit those who have less.
