Exploring Spirituality


We often lead busy and crowded lives where it can be difficult to really take enough time to grow close to God.

Part of the Christian journey is to explore new ways of developing an intimate relationship with God. This may be done through reading or through exploring prayer and mediation within groups or communities.


One way of doing this is through taking time out from daily life and going on quiet days or longer retreats.


Here you can information about
Retreat Centres.

Some of you may have seen ‘ The Monastery’ where, the Abbot of Worth Abbey guided five modern men (and three million viewers). If you find that your life is taking you in directions that you’re uncertain about why not look at the
Finding Sanctuary website.
