Glorious sunshine greeted guests attending the 2019 Easter Retreat at Downside this past weekend. 

The programme was packed with workshops, talks and services throughout the weekend with something for everyone to enjoy – adults and children alike. Guests also had time for reflection and socialising with others, developing new and old friendships.

The Retreat was centred on the theme ‘Lord, teach us to Pray’. More details of the programme can be found here.

The beautiful surroundings of Downside and the warmth of the sun were appreciated during the Cross Walk, a very different experience to the unfavourable weather that greeted last year’s guests! Children also enjoyed their own Cross Walk, guided by Brother John.
