Young and Contemplative – Monday 9th to Friday 13th April

If you are young, this is the one! This week is dedicated to 18 to 30 year olds who are drawn to a contemplative spirituality in the midst of our busy world. As you share in the rhythm of prayer, manual work, reflection and communal life with the Hilfield Friary Community you can explore new ways of seeking God’s presence in your life in all its facets.

You might discover how fellowship and prayer are two inseparable sides of one coin as both grow out of listening deeply to God and each other – allowing God to use you as a channel of his love.

Come and explore with us – whether you are an “expert” or an absolute beginner, whether you are sure about your faith or don’t follow any: we are all learning about seeking God’s presence in our busy, often messy lives.

The suggested donation for the retreat is £100 which includes the course plus 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.



9 April @ 6:00 pm
