Booking will open on Wednesday 10th January.

We are delighted to invite you to our second annual Easter Festival of Faith & Reconciliation at our stunning North Coast site. We are currently confirming a host of speakers, poets and musicians to take part and will confirm the line–up when booking opens in January. But just to whet your appetite we can confirm that former Beirut hostage Brian Keenan will be joining us and also the children of renowned folk act, The Sands Family have formed their own band. Called Na Leanai (meaning the Kids) they will be bringing new life to some traditional classics. There will be theology, cups of tea, politics, time to talk, a kid’s programme, arts & craft, worship, a dawn service on Easter Sunday morning and more tea and chat. Accommodation will be available on a bed and breakfast basis.

The word reconciliation means ‘to become friends again’ and so we’ve chosen the word ‘cara’ (friend in Irish and Scots Gaelic) for our festival of faith and reconciliation. We are Corrymeela and you are always welcome.

And here is a reminder of last year’s Carafest.
