LGBT Advent & Christmas retreat 15th-17th December

There is so much to recommend this amazing retreat at the fabulous Holland House retreat centre. All meals are prepared by a local chef and there are plenty of rooms in which to relax. The spiritual side of the retreat is thoughtfully led by Urs and is a deeply uplifting experience. Holland House is situated in the idyll of rural Evesham in Worcestershire. It is within easy reach of London with direct trains from London Paddington and other places.

“In this weekend we can discover what the message of Advent and Christmas can mean in the context of our lives as gay, lesbian, bisexual men & women or transgendered people. Our colours of the Rainbow may lead us to this Christ event. 

We remember that Christ was born in the midst of outcasts of his time. As queer men and women of faith we also experience that some religious traditions may not necessarily want us in their midst, yet we find our place, trust our spiritual journey and are blessed. Like the Magi in the nativity story we have gifts to bring, we are invited what theses gifts means as LGBT people for us and the world.

Our time together will consist of talks and discussions, liturgy and meditation, prayer and visualisation with time for quiet reflection and rest. Wherever you are on your faith journey or whatever spiritual background you are from, you are welcome to participate.”

Cost £180  includes accommodation, meals and refreshments. Friday at 12noon to Sunday at 2pm.

  1. Sirs,

    I’d be interested in attending. However, I am on a low pension. May I attend at a slightly reduced rate, please?

    • Anthony, this is out of our hands. This is not a Quest event, but one organised by others which we recommend. We suggest that you follow the link to the retreat organiser, and put your request to them.
