New 2017 Programme Brochure

Posted on Wednesday, 06 April 2016 09:55AM

Hot off the press! Our 2017 programme brochure is now available. If you would like a copy, please order from jane@shepherdsdene.co.uk. Alternatively, view the pdf file online by clicking on the link below...




We do hope that you will find something of interest -  we have a 48-hour bereavement retreat at the end of November, a silent Lent retreat with Bishop John Packer (retired Bishop of Ripon and Leeds),  a retreat focussing on Celtic Christianity and John Bell, from the Iona Community is joining us for a few days again. We are very excited that Mary Fleeson (from the Lindisfarne Scriptorium) is leadng a few days in the autumn using her art, which is inspired by the illuminated religious texts of the Northern Saints, and we have a day event with the Bishop of Durham, focusing on the church's response to the refugee cris, with the Bishop of Durham, our first individually guided retreat in July. There is much more besides this on our programme for 2017 and we hope that you will take some time to browse the brochure and get a feel for who we re and what we have to offer. 

Please note that our Complete Cuthbert week is moving from it's usual slot in August to April and will focus more widely on the Northern Saints this year, as a 'Northern Saints Pilgrimage'. We hope the change in emphasis and timing may appeal to a new group of pilgrims hoping to explore our rich Christian heritage in the North East.

We would love to see you at Shepherds Dene this year - even you cannot make any of our organised events, why not try us for a family celebration or a peaceful few days away for your church group?
