Event Details

Beginners Silent Residential Retreat with Alison Christian

Going on retreat for the first time can feel like a daunting experience. What am I letting myself in for? Will I enjoy it? What about the silence? Will I cope with it? What do I do with it?

This semi silent retreat is for those who have never been on retreat before, or certainly not on a silent retreat. You may have experienced a Quiet Day or been away on a parish weekend, but this is your first residential on your own, and your first try at being silent over a prolonged time. If that is your experience so far, this retreat will be an ideal next step! The aim of the weekend is to help you enter the world of silent retreats gently and with plenty of support. There will be guidance on how to use the time; periods on your own and with the other retreatants and the opportunity to share your experience with others if you wish to do so. During your stay you can join in with the community’s rhythm of prayer and worship; walk, write, potter or simply rest, as the spirit takes you.

This retreat is full board and all our rooms at St Katharine are ensuite.

Cost £258.   Book HERE
