Retreats and Events
Residential retreats and external events

Our ministry offers day experiences across the region.  Please see the individual Quiet Days, Soul Days and Hopeweavers@Home  pages.  We cannot offer residential accommodation at present but we do often have retreats and special events being planned in other places including Hilfield Friary and St Columba's, Woking.

Planning some intentional space for stillness and reflection in 2018?  Why not consider being part of a hopeweaver retreat - postponed due to snow from March - part of the 2018 Hilfield Friary Programme

'Gaze, Consider, Contemplate.'
13-16th November 2018

Take some time out 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 space for creative stillness. 

One or two places available!
Please book this Retreat directly with Hilfield Friary

Clare of Assisi and Teresa of Avila - women building community

Thank you to all who attended from across the UK and beyond!
  Please see the Hilfield Friary website for details of their 2018 programme.  Previous Retreats led by hopeweavers alongside members of the Hilfield Friary community include 'Swords into Ploughshares', 'The Canticle of the Creatures' and 'Gaze upon that mirror'.  
At the end of a previous retreat led by the Community of Hopeweavers at Hilfield Friary, creative work made during the retreat was shared as a focus for the Sunday Eucharist held in the Friary Chapel.
