The pattern of the last few years at Fowey has seen a growing number of small groups and individuals coming for retreat with specific needs for quiet, prayer, guidance, respite or teaching. We have been delighted to accommodate and assist wherever possible.

In terms of ‘led retreats’ this has often meant responding to particular requests and that, having proved very fruitful, will continue.

As a result, there will be no set programme of teaching retreats.

If you would like to bring a small group we would be very pleased to discuss your needs and tailor the retreat for you.

Last year we had groups on everything from the Mysteries of Light to the ministry of the Deacon.

All the teaching retreats listed below remain available. Individual retreatants remain most welcome and we will do everything possible to make your stay a time of restoration and encounter with God.
