I will give you rest
Leader: Revd Henriette Howarth
The intention of this retreat is to respond to Jesus’ invitation: ‘Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.’
This weekend is for those who are looking for spiritual nourishment, especially for those who live with or care for loved ones who struggle with physical or mental health challenges. There will be space to rest and time to receive from God, and opportunities to learn from Scripture and other spiritual resources about His compassion and love for those who care deeply for others. We won’t shy away from addressing some of the difficult questions regarding pain and suffering, but this will be done in a sensitive and restorative way.
We don’t expect people to share personal stories with the group, but there will be a chance to talk confidentially with the retreat leaders. Music and creativity will be offered as tools to relax and experience God’s Spirit. Sally Sutcliffe will support with music and Carol Wood with creative arts.
Henriette Howarth is an Anglican priest, originally from the Netherlands, but now based in Yorkshire. She is a spiritual director, meditation teacher and has a Masters in Biblical Studies. She has worked in health care and education chaplaincy and as a parish priest. She has personal experience of caring for and accompanying young people with physical and mental health challenges.
