The Association for Promoting Retreats (APR) was founded in 1913 to promote the development of the Christian life through retreats, particularly within the Anglican Communion.

Today the APR works in partnership with the Retreat Association. We are the largest of the RA’s founding member groups, serving alongside each other in strengthening the understanding and importance of retreats within our own Church traditions and to promote the value of retreats: for individuals, for the Church, and for society as a whole. Take a look around and discover how a retreat could be just what you are looking for.

‘Take off your Shoes’: Retreat at St. Columba’s House

Tuesday 6th – Thursday 8th November 2018

Led by our new President, Bishop John Stroyan, and entitled ‘Take your shoes off’, this retreat is an opportunity to turn aside and see not only that the ground upon which we stand is holy, but that the holy ground of God is already deep within us. Led by Bishop John, it will incorporate a gentle rhythm of prayer and silent meditation, balanced by times of fellowship and reflection.
