New Year Retreat

New Year Retreat 30 December 2020 to 3 January 2021

Get away from the hype and spend New Year thoughtfully and without pressure in the company of Friends.  

Enjoy cooking and sharing meals together, taking walks (weather permitting) and exploring the wonderful landscape of the Hope Valley. Members of the community will offer optional creative and reflective sessions to share what we value in our lives.  

This is a relaxed and informal gathering to mark the turn of the year.

There will be free time and opportunities to join in the Community’s regular Meeting for Worship.  

The weekend will start with supper at 6 pm on Wednesday 30 December 2020 and end after lunch on Sunday 3 January 2021. You would be welcome to arrive any time after 3 pm on Wednesday afternoon.

Our vegetarian and vegan food is always popular, and special diets can be accommodated if notified in advance.

If you have not visited us before you may be pleased to know that the community is based in an old building which is homely and comfortable.  It has 11 acres of its own grounds.
