Bespoke Group Days

Quiet away days and prayerful spaces for teams and groups

Would your group be interested in coming aside and creating quiet space together?  We work in various locations which are usually peaceful and inspiring and we can visit you in your own setting, or support you to develop your own quiet away day elsewhere.  

We would be pleased 

to explore potential bookings for 2021/22

Support from our Team

You may consider inviting us to come and work alongside you as you develop your own prayerful and still space. We have a team of Members of the Community of Hopeweavers who are experienced quiet day leaders and creators of sanctuary spaces.  We ask a donation for this work to cover our costs and to support those places who are not so able to make a donation.
