We arrange 3 to 4 events a year in different venues around the three counties to give you opportunities to explore and develop your personal life. Our hope is that the events will refresh and inspire, encourage and support you. A charge is made.

These one-day “Food for the Soul” events are for people wanting to go further and deeper on their spiritual journey and for trained spiritual directors.

  • 16th November 2018. A Spirituality of Interruptions?
    Led by Padraig O’Tuoma
    11.00 – 4.15 at the Carmelite Retreat Centre, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HB
    Padraig is the leader of the Corrymeela Community.  A poet and theologian, he writes and talks about life at large and faith in particular, painting vivid pictures and posing big questions.
    This workshop will explore interruptions in the gospel accounts. So much of life today feels busy, where interruptions take us away from our priorities. This day will deepen an appreciation for Jesus’ capacity to respond to interruptions and deepen our practice of a spirituality of interruptions.
