New Winter Programme

With summer behind us and already deep into Autumn, we’re excited to announce our new Winter programme of Quiet Days, events and other activities.

Come and join us either as a day guest or stay over for the weekend.

 

My Journey

A signpost at a junction
Which way to go?

Saturday 20th November 2021


A Quiet Day run by Naomi Casserly


Take time out to reflect where you’ve been, where you are and where you hope to be. What kind of paths you prefer and to check your map?


A simple lunch and refreshments are included.


 

An evening with David Benjamin Blower

Thursday 20th January 2022

A Gig with 6-string writer, poet, theologian and podcaster of Nomad fame.

A night of song, poetry and connection, sitting round our fire.

David says;

"I am on the road again... Candle-lit folk hymns and contemplation; apocalyptic blues, poetry and radical imagination; community mapping, grief and wonder... let’s brew something wonderful."


 

Planting Memories

English bluebells

Saturday 12th February

Plant a wildflower bulb in memory of someone or something you have lost during this difficult time.


Taking time out to grieve and mourn is an important part of processing life and looking to the future.


Plus, you will be helping us increase our bio-diversity here at Treargel.


Drop-in between 11 and 2pm, refreshments available.

There will be a simple Gathering at 12noon with a blessing and a song.

 

Gardening Week

26th March - 3rd April

Come and help us keep Treargel so beautiful.

Free accommodation in exchange for some therapeutic work. Plus fun together including bonfires, film nights and meals. (Though, please note, the week will be self-catered, otherwise I have to pay a caterer!)

By the way, you don't have to stay the whole week, and some slots have already gone.

 

Retreat Association Icon

Displayed throughout April

The Retreat Association Icon of the Woman at the Well.
Woman at the Well

We are very privileged to be part of the Retreat Association tour displaying the icon; formerly at places such as Truro and Southwark Cathedrals, Douai Abbey and Ripon College.


Icons have been used for centuries to offer a way of engaging with a bible story through prayer, stillness and contemplation

'Icon John' recently created this one with the traditional methods of iconography such as using ground minerals and gold leaf. John spoke about how prayer is central to the process of creating an icon.


Icon Quiet Day - Saturday 23rd April

We will have plenty to discuss and reflect on as the icon thoughtfully depicts the Samaritan Woman at the Well. A fascinating story containing issues of race, gender, sex, power, truth and the question of 'true worship'.

 

Finding Stability in times of change

Saturday 7th May

A Quiet Day run by Rev’d Jane and Richard Frost MBE, author of 'Life with St Benedict'.
