A Celebration of Evelyn Underhill

Monday, 14th June @ 10:00 am - Friday, 18th June @ 4:00 pm

Have the courage to take your spiritual temperature ? 

Join us for a Celebration of Evelyn Underhill.

June 15th, 2021 marks the 80th anniversary of the death of Evelyn Underhill. She was a remarkable woman, author and theologian. A leading authority on prayer – she challenged the leaders of the church to take their spiritual temperature and she challenges us today to do the same.

Leave behind turbulence and conflict for a week of nourishment.

The Diocesan Retreat House at Pleshey, with the Evelyn Underhill Association in the USA and Hampstead Parish Church (where Evelyn is buried) presents a full week of online events ( 14th-18th June)  to:

  • celebrate this remarkable woman.
  • discover how her writings speak to us today.
  • take your spiritual temperature and let your heart burn again.
  • explore her links with the Retreat House at Pleshey.
  • gain insights from the latest scholarship into her life and ministry and her writing.

A Global Conversation

Join experts from around the globe to explore Evelyn’s work and soak up, engage and enjoy the debate. Our speakers have been drawn from around the world to make this a truly international week.
