Creative Arts Retreat – Painting & Prayer (Theme: Journeys)
Friday, 2nd August @ 6:00 pm - Friday, 9th August @ 10:00 am£475 – £523
You can expect a warm welcome, space to reflect, to pray and to worship, as well as plenty of time to be creative.
We shall explore some journeys mentioned in the Bible, and their relevance for our own faith journeys, and enjoy painting as we meander through the House of Retreat, Pleshey’s gardens and surrounding countryside, relating our work to the Biblical journeys or our own if relevant.
