Summer Gathering - 2024
Young Adults, 20 - 23 August

Are you aged 18-35? Want to deepen your faith alongside other young adults?

Summer Gathering 2024 - Young Adults - an Invitation…

Are you aged 18-35? Want to deepen your faith alongside other young adults?


This August, you'll have a chance to join us for our young adults retreat at Worth Abbey, "Run With The Light"! Our theme for this retreat is based on the phrase "Running with the light of life", found in both The Rule of St Benedict and the Gospel of John. How do we encounter the light of true joy in our lives, and how can we not only embrace it, but run with it?


This retreat will be a chance to live out the Benedictine values of prayer, work and community, alongside other young adults, as part of a lay monastic experience! 


Activities will include times of prayer, reflection on the theme and a chance to offer holy service to the monks through work on the Abbey grounds. There will also be plenty of time to socialise and get to know each other too! We'll be staying at St Bruno's in Worth Abbey, a beautiful monastery situated near Crawley in West Sussex. 


You'll also have the chance to join us for our community Summer Gathering, which will take place at Worth the following weekend. (Please note that you will need to book separately for this - using this link to our Summer Gathering page).

As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.
