Retreat In Daily Working Life Opening Meeting
13th September – 1st November
A decision will be made nearer the time over whether these meetings are going to be in person or online: please book the date and we’ll let participants know the plans in due course. You can decide whether you would prefer to meet your prayer guide in person or online or by telephone. The Retreat involves:
Daily private prayer: The heart of the retreat is private individual prayer. You are invited to make a commitment to pray privately, daily, for whatever period you can manage each day, but we recommend at least 30 minutes a day.
Weekly individual meeting with your prayer guide: Once a week, you will meet with your allocated prayer guide for about 30 minutes. Some prayer guides are only available to meet online or by phone, but if you’d like to meet in person (in line with the restrictions that are in place) we’ll aim to accommodate this. Beyond this, you and your prayer guide will arrange the details of your meeting together.
Meetings to begin and end the retreat: Although this is not a group retreat or prayer group, there is a sense in which everyone making the retreat is journeying together, so we’ll share a meeting to open and close the retreat. The Opening Meeting will be on Monday 13th September and the Closing Meeting will be on Monday 1st November, both at 17:30-19:00pm
In order to match up Prayer Guides and participants, it is helpful to understand any specific constraints, so when you book your place you will be asked questions about Place/Platform/Day/Time/Other, to get an idea of what’s going to work for you. The main thing to appreciate is that the time to meet your Prayer Guide will fit with your availability.
Please note that we will share your booking information with Manresa Link, in order to allocate Prayer Guides appropriately and so that, for the purposes of practical arrangements for the retreat only, Manresa Link or your Prayer Guide can contact you: by entering booking information, you are agreeing to ChaplaincyPlus sharing this information with Manresa Link, on this basis. If you need to know more on this, you are welcome to contact Sarah Thorpe email@example.com
This Retreat is open to Christians and to anyone who is searching or curious about God.
We ask for £20 towards the work of Manresa Link (with a small additional payment to cover the Eventbrite fees, taking the total to £22.15). Additionally, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who chose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a further donation to enable our work to remain open to all. However, we do not want the cost to preclude anyone from participating: please speak to Sarah Thorpe if you need to discuss this aspect.
If you have any questions please contact to Sarah Thorpe firstname.lastname@example.org or 0798 224 8949.
