With Retreat House Chester, ‘spiritual accompaniment’ offers the chance to meet one-to-one with one of our experienced retreat guides, to explore your own experience of God in your everyday life. These soulful conversations, over a period of time, can help us notice and respond to God.
Retreat House Chester can offer you different ways to do this:
through one of our occasional individually-guided retreats (sometimes called ‘IGRs’ for short), when a number of people meet one-to-one with a guide over the same few days or week (keep an eye on our programme for this)
meeting for six sessions with one of our retreat guides, over a period of six weeks to six months (contact us for more information or to arrange this - suggested cost £15 per session). This can be especially helpful if you are ‘trying out’ spiritual accompaniment or have a particular area of your spiritual life you’d like to explore.
asking for our contact list of local guides, to make your own arrangements
contacting us to see if our guides can help your church offer an Individually-Guided Retreat or Week of Guided Prayer
We hope we can help with what you’re looking for.
