Corrymeela Programmes


Spiritual Retreats

Each year we run a programme of retreats that bring participants together from all walks of life for a weekend of reflection, community, sharing and rest. 

Silent Retreats

We run two such retreats a year. These gatherings use gentle liturgy, Ignatian reflection and rest to create a community of silence and calm for a weekend. 

Merton Retreats

We run a retreat based on the writings and life of Thomas Merton every year. This uses specially written liturgies to create an office of prayer and reflection over a restful weekend. 

Blessed are the Brave Retreats

These retreats are for clergy who are LGBT affirming. They always take place during the latter half of January. The 2019 retreat is currently planned for 18–20 January, click here for more information.

Clergy Retreats

We run midweek (Wednesday 10am–Thursday 2pm) retreats for clergy and other full–time faith workers. These retreats provide an opportunity for people who are “Professional Christians” to engage with their own prayer life, reflect in a community of other practitioners and provide support for each other in the personal journey of faith. 

Open Spirituality Retreats

We also run one or two retreats for people who are keen to explore Christianity within the context of their own lives, hosting an engaged conversation about what it means to practice a Faith tradition in the complexity of today’s world. Keep an eye on the events page for details of these.
