Do you have a hunger to grow deeper in your relationship with God? We will be taking time to delve deeper into one particular aspect of faith, letting the truths of scripture sink in and shape our foundations. Amidst the tranquil Mulberry House grounds we offer the guidance of experienced retreat leaders to fuel your reflections along with the support to nurture your journey with God. There will be a time of stillness during the day (and also opportunity for prayer with a team member as required).
£22.50 per person including lunch
