Give your spirit a chance to breathe, and your body and soul a chance to rest and be restored as we reflect together upon the ebb and flow of our lives.

Throughout this retreat we will offer original music and song, art work and visual images, poetry, reflections, Scripture, one-to-one, quiet times and personal space to support your journey.

To sustain and nurture you on this journey you will be offered:

  • Original music and song
  • Art work and visual images
  • Poetry
  • Guided reflections
  • Scripture
  • Opportunity for one-to-one sessions
  • Personal space to relax and reflect
  • Time to be still

"Sarah and Libby have a real gift for creating an atmosphere and welcome, and respect for where participants are at."

"They offered a calm and safe place - welcome to all."

"The gentle pace of the retreat, the beautiful thought-provoking poems, songs and readings and their humour - all these created a quality sacred space that was very moving."

About the Leaders:

Libby Dobson has been writing and performing contemplative songs for a number of years. Her CD recordings include ‘In Your Arms’, ‘Deep Calls to Deep’ and ‘Wide Horizons’. 

Sarah Chabowska has been involved in leading prayer in a variety of contexts, and has been writing her own poetry for many years.

Together they have produced a CD entitled ‘Peace’ which includes a selection of their songs and poems. Both Sarah and LIbby are trained in ‘spiritual accompaniment’ and have been leading retreats together since 2013, in retreat centres, parishes and with other Christian groups.

Their retreats have proved very popular, many people finding them a refreshing oasis to which they return again and again.

IN MY FATHER'S HEART is a compelling call from the Holy Spirit to go deeper into our Father's heart. It is the theme for our Encounter Weeks, this year. It’s not just about "knowing"; more about engaging heart-to-heart with Father God’s passion for us and allowing the Holy Spirit to ignite our passion for Him. We so want to share this journey of engagement with Father's heart, together with you. And trust that it will prove a truly transformative experience for all of us. There’ll be opportunity to go deeper in worship and receive inspiring, releasing teaching and personal prayer ministry, as well as time for your own reflection and recreation in this beautiful part of the Gower. We see Jesus doing amazing works of healing, restoration, renewal and equipping! Weather permitting, on one of the days (most likely the Sunday) we will have a breakfast on the local beach at Oxwich Bay!

GOD'S House: The Story of Nicholaston House, by Derrick Hancock.The incredible story of a retreat house in one of Wales’ most spectacular beauty spots has been published.

‘God’s House’ is a detailed account of how Nicholaston House came into existence by the man who had the vision and was given instruction direct from God.

In 1990 God unmistakably led Sue and Derrick Hancock to Swansea to see a vision fulfilled which God had given them some years previously. The booklet (A5, 53 pages, colour) gives a brief factual account of what God did and is doing. It has been written for two reasons - to give glory to God and to show what very ordinary people can do when they step out in faith with God. 'All that we have accomplished, You have done for us' - Isaiah 26 v 12.
