Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?
Please bring something for lunch. Water, tea and coffee will be provided, as well as morning tea.

Do I need to take notes? Will there be an exam?
There will be some great information on the day which you might like to write down to recall later but there’s no need to and there won’t be a test at the end of the day. The aim of the day is to be led into a place of retreat, rest, prayer, and healing.

Can I bring my spouse or partner?
Of course!

How much does this cost?
To those who have given so much, this is our attempt to give back to you. The day is (and will always be) free.
