Women’s retreats

Connect with one another and with God at our women's retreat days.

Join our retreat days

We hold regular retreat days providing opportunities for women, both in and out of GB Ministries, to have space to connect with one another and to connect with God.

Our retreats include:

  • Interactive sessions
  • Time to connect with others
  • A guided walk
  • Time to relax together, and
  • Periods of rest and quiet.

It was peaceful and quiet, which was like an oasis in the midst of a busy life.

Our retreat weekends are held in joint-partnership between Girls’ Brigade Ministries and Cliff College, and are supported through a Methodist Church Connexional Mission and Ministry Grant.

Come to the River

Our Come to the River day retreat has been developed with busy GB community group leaders in mind. Pause and refresh yourself and your GB team whilst looking at the story of Lydia in the Bible. So far this retreat day has been run for dozens of leaders across the country, from Portsmouth to Durham – why not extend this to your area?

Available dates in 2020 are:
Saturday 20 June
Saturday 18 July
Saturday 1 August
Saturday 8 August.
