The retreat was deemed to have been a great success and worth repeating so the dates for next year’s retreat at the same venue have been booked (17th-19th May 2019). This year’s retreat was led by the Retreat Facilitator (and National Committee member), John Ashman. This was a last minute change as the member of the community who was supposed to give three talks on the theme, “Do you love me?” (John 21:15-17) had to withdraw on health grounds.
The 2019 retreat theme is “Lord, it’s good for us to be here” , a reflection on the Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-13). It will certainly be good to return to the Abbey where the welcome given to Quest members is outstandingly warm.
