Retreat in Daily Working Life – Autumn 2019
Date and Time
Mon 16 Sep
- Daily Life Retreat Opening Meeting
September 16, 2019
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Book your place on the Retreat in Daily Working Life, run by ChaplaincyPlus in partnership with Manresa Link. 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, over the six weeks, 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, at a time and place in the city centre that works for you, fitting around your work commitments – or even at the home of the individual or the prayer guide, if this works for you both. You will arrange the details together with your prayer guide.
- Group 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 meet together for an opening meeting on Monday 16 September and a closing meeting on Wednesday 6 November. Both these meetings are from 6-7pm (with refreshments from 5.30pm) at the ChaplaincyPlus office, Floor 8, One Colmore Row, Birmingham, B3 2BJ – the building with the Coop just to the right of the entrance to Snow Hill station.

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/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 helpful, you can always have a conversation on this with Sarah Thorpe firstname.lastname@example.org
This Retreat is open to Christians and to anyone who is searching or curious about God.
There is no charge as such for making the Retreat, but we do ask for a contribution of £25 towards the expenses of the prayer guides and ChaplaincyPlus. However, if this is would be a problem for you, we hope you will join in anyway: if this is your situation, please contact to Sarah Thorpe email@example.com or 0121 236 9472 or 0798 224 8949.
