Retreat in Daily Working Life

Retreat in Daily Working Life

Date(s) - 17 September 2024
17:30 - 19:00

What does the Retreat involve?

  • The heart of the Retreat is daily individual private prayer, for perhaps 30 minutes each day.
  • Also, once a week you will meet with your allocated prayer guide for about 30 minutes, either online or in person, at a time that works for you, fitting round work commitments.
  • And we ask all participants to make a priority of attending the in person Opening and Closing Meetings, so that we make connections across the Birmingham business community through the Retreat.

What does it cost to join in this Retreat? We suggest a donation of £20 towards the work of Manresa Link . However, we do not want the cost to preclude anyone from participating: please speak to Sarah Thorpe if you need to discuss this aspect. Additionally, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who chose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a further (optional) donation to enable our work to remain open to all. 

The Opening and Closing Meetings are important parts of our Retreat.  As well as going deeper in our relationship with God through the six weeks, the Retreat gives a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our sense of community with others who are working in Birmingham.  So we ask everyone who joins in the Retreat to make a priority of attending our Opening Meeting on Tuesday 17 September and our Closing Meeting on Tuesday 5 November at 5:30 for 6-7pm.  These meetings are for all participants and prayer guides. Both meetings will take place at our ChaplaincyPlus offices (with Agape) at 167 Newhall Street, Birmingham, B3 1SW (a 10-15 minute walk from New Street Station and from the Church of England cathedral). Join us for refreshments from 5:30pm and our meeting will run from 6-7pm. It will be good to see you there.

If you have any questions please contact to Sarah Thorpe  or 0798 224 8949
