We receive many grateful comments from people who have benefited from APR bursaries in order to go on retreat. Just a selection are given below:

What an amazing place, so peaceful and the views and walks are wonderful. Finding space to rest, recover, pray and read. Just what the doctor ordered! Will be back. – Ceri, Treargel Retreats, January 2019

I am short of words to express how blessed I was to visit St Katherine’s on Saturday- it’s truly an oasis full of living water! I have been longing for such a place as this for some time now and hope I will have a chance to visit you again in the future. – Szabina, Royal Foundation of St Katharine, September 2018

I didn’t want to leave … Thanks is such an inadequate word but you have it from the bottom of my heart. I’m not fully whole but ready to face the world again. – Eileen, Treargel, February 2019
Just wanted to say a big thank you for offering genuine kindness and warmth. And a safe nurturing environment to help me facilitate growth and healing from within. I will definitely be recommending it at the women’s group I attend as a place of transformative healing to transmute pain into power! – Phoenix, Treargel, January 2020

Pace was good. Meals, group meeting following by individual reflection time which allowed me in depth to explore what’s in my heart. – Anesu, Royal Foundation of St Katharine, July 2018

Thank you so much for the bursary that you recently gave my husband, Alan, and me.  It allowed us to participate in a very creative and restorative Poetry and Prayer Retreat at the Royal Foundation of St. Katharine’s.  Our time there was like the hobbits, after a very harrowing journey, visiting the peaceful, safe elves for a bit in Tolkein’s writings. Your generosity has helped us return refreshed to our work among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor in Kroo Bay Sierra Leone. – Cami (Missionary), Royal Foundation of St Katharines, November 2017

 After 32 years of non-stop cross-cultural ministry, this has been much needed and greatly appreciated, thank you. – Thomas, December 2018
