New Year Retreat Day: Gate of the Year


‘I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year, “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown”. And he replied, “Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than a light, and safer than a known way’ – Minnie Haskins

This reflective retreat day, led by Julia MacDonald and Marion Bettenworth CJ, will create space, as we turn into a new year, to gently look back over the year that has been and prayerfully look forward to the year to come with a sense of hopefulness and possibility.

The day will now be offered online – the structure of the day will remain the same with a mix of time spent collectively together onscreen (with some inputs, guided reflection and sharing space) and time off screen for individual prayer and creative reflection.

We’re disappointed not to meet in person but given the current situation it feels the wise option to shift online to allow as many as possible the opportunity to participate in the day.  Although different to an in person event, our online gatherings also create opportunity for real connection and depth of experience – you will be most welcome to join even if a new experience for you!
