 Thursday, 4th - Sunday 7th Septermber, Retreat at Ffald-y-brenin 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to visit this amazing Christian Retreat Centre near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire (www.ffald-y-brenin.org). Ten people are already attending and we need another seven to secure the booking (as at July). We have two drivers at the moment and need at least two more to help with transportation (your fuel costs will be covered). Accommodation and food are provided at a cost of £140 (which also includes a contribution towards travel expenses). The idea of the retreat is a time to reflect and come closer to God. To this end there is not a structured program and you will have lots of free time to meditate and explore.

To book or get more information contact Lisa Huckle (01908 217429 or lisahuckle30@sky.com).
