With Rev Sandy Southee & Sr Jean Searson
The wonderful beauty of prayer is that the opening of our heart is as natural as the opening of a flower. To let a flower open and bloom it is only necessary to let it BE; so if we simply ARE, if we become and remain still and silent, our heart cannot but be open, the Spirit cannot but pour through into the whole of our being. It is for this we have been created. ~ John Main

Andy Kind is a comedian, preacher and writer, who has made people laugh around the world for the last 15 years. He loves seeing people's minds change about who they were born to be, by using the creative to point to the Creator. He also loves seeing people bring him whiskey and meat.

Over recent years we have had 3 wonderful Retreats at Christmas. This is open to all but is particularly there for those who might normally spend Christmas on their own.

There will be opportunity for those who wish to, to have quiet space but it is also time for people to have a comfortable, relaxed time together. Arriving any time after 1:00pm on Christmas Eve through to leaving by 2:00pm on Boxing Day, the time together offers the opportunity for fellowship, fun, quiet, relaxation and good food!
