Advent Retreat

10th December 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 13th December 2019 @ 3:00 pm


Leader: Canon Adrian Botwright

Advent is all about the ‘not just yet’. Unlike Christmas, Easter, Pentecost or Ascension, we’re not busy celebrating something which has already happened, rather we’re there before it all happens; we’re waiting, calm, open, poised – and this gives Advent a very different and rather special feel. This retreat will try to help us enjoy to the full these days of ‘not yet’; to set aside the trivial things which too often dominate our lives; to develop an attitude of waiting on God, and to dare to be surprised, challenged and thrilled by what may happen at the end of Advent.

Canon Adrian Botwright was Rector of Holy Trinity in Skipton for almost 20 years. He now lives in Thirsk and focuses on leading retreats, quiet days, offering spiritual direction and serving as Chaplain in various places, including four weeks each year on Bardsey Island. He enjoys hugely music, poetry, walking, trains, a campervan, and scuba diving.
