Members of the Community of Hopeweavers 
will be leading a retreat in March as part of the 2018 Hilfield Friary Programme

'Gaze, Consider, Contemplate.'
Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th March 2018

Take some time out alongside the Hilfield Friary Community to discover more from St Clare of Assisi to 'gaze, consider, contemplate '. Drawing on her own writings, the words of Jesus and contemporary sources, join us as we make intentional space to draw closer to God, to share our own creativity and stories. 
 Come and explore Hilfield Friary and experience the creative stillness offered through the Community of Hopeweavers, an Acknowledged Anglican Religious Community.
