Categories: ,


One of a series of day retreat’s on offer throughout 2020,  working with the teachings of Fr Richard Rohr, Franciscan Friar, author and leader of the Centre for Action and Contemplation.

Led by Rev’d Ian Spencer these retreats are based on themes from Rohr’s book of daily meditations “A Spring within us”.

Theme for today is “Transformative dying” .  Rohr writes “Historically…..God was not considered friendly and always needing placating. God was distant and scary …. not someone you fell in love with or with whom you could imagine sharing intimacy. Jesus presented a much different image of God, but it seems very hard for people to let go of their punitive ideas of God…….  Just four days after Easter Sunday we shall be exploring the theme of what kind of dying is truly transformative?

Each day will include teaching, discussion and free time to practice/consider what we’ve learned.

The day will conclude with a contemplative Holy Communion service (optional but all invited) followed by afternoon tea at 4pm.

Cost £40 and includes morning coffee, 2 course lunch and afternoon tea.
