NEW Online Easter Retreat

In conjunction with our friends in Geneva we have produced a continuation of the Lent Retreat which extends until Pentecost. 
So if you would like to continue this retreat, then CLICK HERE to start your new retreat.
Even if you didn't do the Lent retreat, you can now start this Easter Retreat.  It entails one period of prayer a day.

NEW Online - A Retreat for You at Home 

A new Individually Guided 4-6 day retreat.  Arrange any dates in July and August.
A great opportunity to make the most of this period of isolation by experiencing an individually guided retreat at home or any place you feel safe. 
Have a daily online meeting with one of our trained spiritual guides, and pray as you would at a residential retreat centre. 
We suggest three or four periods of prayer a day for between 4 and 6 days.  For further details and to book.  CLICK HERE.

Two of the team at the ISC are preparing for a weekly Hour of Prayer Meeting on Fridays.

Men's Group Online

Our men's group will continue to take place, but on Zoom rather than in the ISC, on the first Monday of May and June.
So men over 18 can join us for a blether - and a presentation on a theme. 
So sit down in front of your computer or mobile with a coffee or something stronger, and join us for a communal sharing of ideas, passions and insights.
