Shaping Our Lives – Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June

“I am creative life within you; trust in Me, abide in Me and live.”

During this weekend we shall explore these words, through looking at sculptures, pictures and other pieces, using them as inspiration for our own creativity through the ups and downs of life’s journey.

There is no requirement for artistic expertise, this is an opportunity to experiment, play and discover.

A varied selection of materials e.g. fabrics, clay, paints, papers, pencils and inks will be provided.

This is not a silent retreat but there will be opportunities for silence and individual reflection. We look forward to sharing this weekend with you in the beautiful surroundings of Hilfield Friary.

The retreat will be led by Maggie Hooper and Lin Burton.

The suggested donation for the weekend is £130 which includes meals and accommodation. We are willing to accept less if this figure is not possible for you. Please contact Suzi who will be happy to help you with your booking in confidence.  We ask people to Gift Aid their donation wherever possible.

We do not make a charge for guests to stay with us but any donation towards our life and ministry is gratefully received. Our ministry includes our work with the poor and marginalised in our country, as well as promoting Franciscan values of justice, peace and integrity of creation. We estimate that it costs £40 to host a guest per day but all your contributions enable our work to go on. Thank you for all your support and encouragement in many ways, however much you are able to give it is important to us that you come and share in our community life.
