A creative arts weekend retreat - making, crafting and creating. Exploring and talking about Jesus, creativity, ourselves and the things that matter. A weekend to connect with others over crafting tables, drink tea, and have space and time with God, all whilst enjoying the beauty of the Peak District. A weekend for everyone who loves making and creating, thinking and talking about faith. A weekend to encourage and affirm creativity in our faith journey whilst making and creating together. A weekend for those who are creative, or long to be; for those who make and create as a hobby or as paid work. As the weekend takes place in early December, it has an Advent theme.

This retreat has space for up to 20 people to create and reflect together, within the beautiful setting of Cliff College.

Good balance of prayer, reflective time, discussion and creative activity. The freedom of 'playing' with different materials was perfect.

Enough time to feel like we’ve made progress and achieved something.

Space to think about what creativity means to me.
