June 24 YWJ Retreat

A retreat is

A time of silence to confront the storms in your life

A time of solitude to share with myself and others

A time of simplicity to examine the complexity of your living and working and your believing

In short it is a set-apart time for you to honestly meet God and for God to meet you.

This on-line retreat will be in your own place, based on material I will send to you beforehand. Some sessions will be shared, others will an opportunity for you to be in solitude outside or in the comfort of your own home. The day will cost £40 and for more details or to book up please message me on FB or email me at Once you book up I will send out your zoom invitation. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
