“Come away with me to a quiet place and rest a while.”
Jesus, in Mark 6.31
Guided Quiet Days – Open to all
We regularly host guided quiet days to which all are welcome. Each day includes meditation and mindfulness practices accessible for the beginner. There are occasions for silence, conversation, creativity and, whatever the weather, opportunities to be outdoors. These quiet days are grounded in the Christian tradition, drawing on Ignatian, Benedictine and Celtic spiritualities.
During 2019 we will be exploring a variety of themes. To find out more take a look at the programme. Suggested donation per person £20.
Guided Quiet Days – Bring your own group
If you would like to bring a group from your parish or home group, or just gather together a bunch of friends for a guided quiet day then please do contact us. You can suggest a theme or ask us for ideas. Have a look at the programme already on offer to spark your thoughts!
Self-Guided Quiet Days for Groups
Are you looking for somewhere to bring your small group or ministry team for an away day? Charlecote Quiet Garden welcomes groups of up to 10 who would like a space in which to contemplate, discern or plan. There is space to sit as one group, but also space to break out into smaller groups, and to be alone. Refreshments are on offer all day. A light lunch can also be provided on request. If you would like to make a booking for your group please contact us.
Suggested donation per person: £15 refreshments only, £20 including lunch.
Self-Guided Quiet Days for individuals
We realise that a guided day with a group is not suitable for everyone, so we also welcome guests who seek quiet space for contemplation alone. Guests are welcome to spend a few hours or all day in the garden, or we can find you somewhere warm in the vicarage from which you can look out onto the garden. If you would like spiritual support during your day there will be someone around for you to talk to. Self-guided quiet days are by appointment only, and need to be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
Suggested donation per person: £10 half day/£15 full day refreshments only, £20 including lunch.
