Going on retreat: an incentive

16 May 2014

THE Association for Promoting Retreats, in association with the Church Times, is offering readers £25 off the cost of a retreat booked and taken before the end of November. The object is straightforward: to encourage people to take the plunge and take themselves off for a spiritual break. It shouldn't be necessary to plug retreats, but even the helpful and enjoyable things of life can get squeezed out by day-to-day demands. Hence this incentive to add a retreat to your spiritual journey through the year.

The small print is minimal: use this voucher towards the cost of a residential retreat of at least one night, or when booking two single-day events at the same time. It can also be used for two people booking and paying jointly for a single day.

Church Times subscribers should use the voucher in the print edition of the paper.

Participating APR houses at the time of going to press include: Ark Homeless Trust, Leics; Carob Tree House, Cyprus; Coleg Y Groes, North Wales; Cygnet Cottage, Devon; Foxhill, Cheshire; Holy Rood House, N. Yorks; House of Bethany, Hampshire; Launde Abbey, Leics; Llangasty Retreat House, Brecon; New Place, Shropshire; Othona Community, Dorset; Reflections, Staffs; Rydal Hall, Cumbria; St Columba's House, Surrey; St Mary's Convent, Oxon; Sarum College, Wilts; Shallowford House, Staffs; Te Deum Christian's Acre, Sweden; The Bothy and The Barn, Scotland; The Coach House, Scotland; The Community of All Hallows, Norfolk; The Living Well, Kent; The Open Gate, Northumberland; The Society of Mary and Martha, Devon; The Well at Willen, Milton Keynes; Whitchester Retreat Centre, Scotland; and Wydale Hall, N. Yorks. For the most up-to-date list of retreat houses accepting the voucher, visit the charity's website at www.promotingretreats.org.
