JOIN IN WITH THE NORTHUMBRIA COMMUNITY IN 2022

We are pleased to be releasing our overview of retreats across the Northumbria Community from January to June 2022.

This has been the biggest, most joyful jigsaw puzzle of the last 18 months yet, because for the first time in many months, we have been able to begin incorporating ‘in person’ events, alongside our Nether Springs and online retreats.  And at the end of January, we will be trying out our first ever ‘hybrid’ event over the Community Group Leaders’ weekend, with some input from the Mother House that we are aiming to ‘live-stream’ for those not able to take part at Nether Springs, in a simultaneous online retreat, hosted by our online Welcome and Hospitality team.  Who could have predicted that such a thing could have been possible two years’ ago? 

If you are a Companion or Novice in Community and on our database, you can expect to hear more from us by email, as new opportunities and ‘in person’ events unfold in 2022. There is a more detailed overview of our ‘joining in’ opportunities in our December edition of ‘Encompass’,

You can download a PDF version of the overview, which contains links to the booking forms, below, or click on the button to go to our main retreats landing page.



Many thanks for continuing to support our work at this time.

The following retreats will be running ONLINE:

  • December 6 – 9 (Monday to Thursday) – ‘Advent Retreat‘ – As we enter the busy seasons of Advent and Christmas, this retreat offers the opportunity to prepare for the weeks ahead, to separate the trivial from the significant, and to consider again the meaning, relevance and wonder of the Annunciation and the Incarnation of Christ. Through conversation and reflection, we’ll prepare to welcome Christ into our hearts and lives. This retreat will include an introduction on the first evening, daily input and the opportunity to join in with the monastic rhythms of the day. This retreat will be led by Carolyn and Lee Howard. LAST FEW SPACES STILL AVAILABLE
  • December 11 – Creative Saturday Morning 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 our lives. There will be an optional creative activity to help you do this, followed by lunch together. SPACES AVAILABLE
