All Saints-tide Retreat – The Way Of The Heart

For the last eighteen years Simon has been Richard’s spiritual director and during this time they have met regularly at The Community of the Resurrection to reflect on many different aspects of life and prayer and responding to the world in which we live. In these conversations they will share their different perspectives and experiences of God and open the conversation up for those joining the retreat to question and respond.

It will take place within the rhythm of the community’s life of prayer and give those participating the opportunity to participate in that daily pattern of worship, silence, reflection and sharing, while listening “to the way of the heart”

Led by Fr Simon Holden CR and Fr Richard Carter

Spring Bank Holiday Retreat

Still haven’t found what you’re looking for…?

The human race is searching, but do we know what we’re looking for? St Augustine said that, ‘our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.’ God is the beginning of our journey and the culmination of all our endeavours to find what we’re truly looking for and discover who we really are.  We are persons made for love because we are created from the love who is God. If we want to know what love is, we have to get to know the One who is love, the one who first loved us. For whom or what are you looking? Do you want to know what love is? Come and delve deeper into the mystery of love who is God during this May bank holiday retreat.

Leaders: Fr Simon CR & Br Marc nCR

Germany themed Week Retreat

Don’t mention the war!

Leader: Fr Thomas CR

18 to 30’s Retreat

What do I do next? It’s a big question. Some will be going to University, while others are thinking about a job. But what does God think? You have gifts and talents that are God’s gift to you, and using them to the full causes us to come alive – ‘The glory of God is a person fully alive.’ (Saint Irenaeus). Take time to reflect on your life, supported by the prayers of the Community. You never know what God has in store!

Leader: Br Jacob CR

Greek For Fun!

A little Greek can be a great help in seeing new levels of meaning and significance in the Gospels. In these days we will engage directly with the Greek and English texts of the Gospels.

However, we do not expect a high level of Greek. An ability to read it will be enough. No one will be embarrassed!

Monastic Experience

Exploring the Religious Life…

Are you wondering if you might be called to the religious life? Come and spend some time living in a monastic community, and looking at how the Rule of Saint Benedict provides instruction on balancing the various parts of life. Through sharing in CR’s worship and prayers, household and garden chores, studying scripture, attending addresses and discussions on the religious life, participants can experience this life from the inside, explore questions and embark on a journey of discernment.
Open to single men and women aged between 18 and 45.

Armistice Centenary Retreat

Into the Way of Peace

How does a Christian live in a world where there are ‘wars and rumours of wars’?

World War l and the century which followed is arguably the most dramatic era in human history. We will use poetry, art, cinema and popular culture (including Comic Cuts and The Rainbow) to reflect on the ‘peace of God’ and his will for each of us, learning about love, about conflict, about sacrifice, about death (perhaps about hell) and about the gift and opportunity of living in the 21st century.

I intend this to be a retreat and not a philosophy session on the rights and wrongs of war. I’m really rather looking forward to it. Do you care to join me?
