As the APR’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to NHS Staff and care-workers for their tireless care throughout the pandemic, we have made a number of Bursaries available for them to go on retreat at any of the APR Retreat Houses across the UK. Thanks to some generous donations, we have been able to extend the scheme again, now running until June 2022.
Full details about how the scheme works, and how to apply, can be found on the Bursary page of our website.
If you would like to contribute to the NHS Bursary Fund, and help even more NHS and Care-Workers take a much-needed retreat this year, please follow this link.
‘Oasis Days’ offer quiet reflection for people who need a day to re-charge their spiritual batteries and enjoy the stimulation of an excellent speaker.
Currently offered online via Zoom, the next one (entitled ‘Painting: More than the Eye can see, led by Susan Hewlett)is to be held on Tuesday 14th June, 10.45am – 3.00pm. Please email APR member, Jane Franklin on firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
Do you want to go on retreat, but are anxious about what might be expected of you?
Many people are nervous about going on retreat for the first time – but there’s really no need! All retreat houses welcome ‘first-timers’ through their doors, for all their retreats, but some also offer retreats specifically for people who haven’t been on one before.
This year, you could choose from the Coach House Kilmuir (near Inverness) from 24-26 June or 16-18 September?
Or Launde Abbey from 16-18 September?
Or Penhurst Retreat Centre in East Sussex from 28 Nov – 1 Dec?
And many of the individually guided retreats at the House of Prayer, East Molesey, are suitable for beginners too – including retreats from 20-22 May, 30 May-1 June, 8-15 July, 9-13 Sept or 7-9 Oct.
