We're delighted to be running this popular retreat again in spring 2022, led by Samantha Tredwell and hosted by Cliff College.

A creative arts weekend retreat - making, crafting and creating. Exploring and talking about Jesus, creativity, ourselves and the things that matter. A weekend to connect with others over crafting tables, drink tea, and have space and time with God, all whilst enjoying the beauty of the Peak District. A weekend for everyone who loves making and creating, thinking and talking about faith. A weekend to encourage and affirm creativity in our faith journey whilst making and creating together. A weekend for those who are creative, or long to be; for those who make and create as a hobby or as paid work.

This retreat has space for up to 20 people to create and reflect together, within the beautiful setting of Cliff College.

Good balance of prayer, reflective time, discussion and creative activity. The freedom of 'playing' with different materials was perfect.

Enough time to feel like we’ve made progress and achieved something.

Space to think about what creativity means to me.

18-20 March 2022

When you book you will be shown the full cost of this retreat - however, many participants prefer to pay a deposit when booking and pay the full balance closer to the time of the retreat. Therefore we have enabled BACS payment rather than card payment for this retreat, and you will receive an email with payment details after completing your booking. You do not need to make a payment in order to complete your booking.

If you have any questions about the booking process, please contact shortcourse@cliffcollege.ac.uk.
