retreats And Seminars
Our retreats are a combination of teaching, group discussions, prayer, meditation and worship.
Each retreat casts its own identity - each one is special and different.
We design them to allow moments of joyful fellowship, creativity,
personal reflection and intimacy with God.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we have had to postpone our "living life to the full" retreat.

This was CYARA's first world day of prayer
where we linked with more than 30 countries around the world, partnering with them in prayer and sharing our different needs and experiences since the pandemic began.
It was insightful, deeply moving , massively encouraging and something we look forward to doing again later this year.

"Joy was something you could feel and see
all around. The time passed so quickly and I came away after an emotional week-end feeling a sense of peace, very different from when I arrived"
