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.
