Armchair Retreats

During the current Covid-19 situation, we will not be gathering for Armchair Retreats, but we will are exploring opportunities for using relevant books and online resources that we can use at home. If you’d like to know more, do email us at

Seeking retreat in an anxious and frantic age is becoming popular — and understandably so! But while many of us yearn for respite from the pressures and distractions of modern life, it’s quite hard to know where to start.

On first Wednesdays of the month, we’re hosting a time of quiet centring when we can learn to allow room in our heads for silence and peace. We have simple centring exercises to help this work, and all is done in the context of Jesus, ‘Emanuel’ — God with us.

This is suitable for all, whether you’re a Jesus follower or not, or whether you’re a mindful starter or not. If you just want some quiet space and an encouraging environment, why not give it a try?

First Wednesday of each month from 10:00 to 12:00, and includes time for good coffee and relaxed conversation. At a home in Colchester. Call 01206 622712 for more info.
