Individually Guided Retreat
Come as you are and set aside time to meet God, led by an experienced prayer guide. Follow the theme or choose your own pathway.
About this retreat
During the retreat you meet with an experienced prayer guide on a daily, one to one, basis. The guide has no pre-set agenda but instead listens to your life and faith concerns, the joys, the sorrows, the hopes and the fears, and suggests ways you might be enabled to explore these concerns with God. To help with this, different passages of scripture will be offered for your time in private prayer. The guide will also help you to plan how you use the day ahead. Each meeting with your prayer guide lasts between 40 and 50 minutes.
Apart from these meetings, each day of an IGR contains time for your individual reflection, time of prayer, and opportunities for walking or other relaxation. This retreat is in silence from evening prayer on the first night until after lunch on Sunday, apart from the daily Service and the meetings with your prayer guide. This is to minimise distractions and to enable you to get in touch with what is deepest in yourself. Above all, an IGR is a time to “Be still and know that I am God” – a God who waits for each one of us, individually, with love.

We provide towels, and either hospitality trays or access to a well-stocked drinks station. Our catering team enjoy a well-deserved reputation for good food and all meals will be freshly prepared in-house.
