Travelling Light Christian Retreats
Provision for the Journey Light for the Path Freedom to Move Forward
Travelling Light is a Christian Retreat Ministry, which began in 2008.
We are all on our individual life journey. Some of it we travel alone. Much of it we travel together with others. All of it we travel with God, whether we realise it or not.
Travelling Light runs retreats and produces reflective material, which we hope will encourage you on your journey. We so often carry 'baggage' from the past, responsibilities and challenges in the present and apprehension about the future. We hope that through the retreats and reflective material, God will draw you closer to himself, and so help you to carry fewer burdens; and that your path in life might be illuminated by the light of Christ.
Why Come on Retreat
A retreat provides an opportunity for you to come away from your everyday environment and spend time with God. Travelling Light runs mainly Day Retreats from 10am. to 4pm. in the South Herefordshire and Monmouth area. Our main venue is St. Dubricius Church, Whitchurch , near Symonds Yat West. The postcode is HR9 6BZ. This is 6 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 4 miles from Monmouth. It is also close to the Forest of Dean. The church is situated on the banks of the river Wye in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
By coming on a retreat, you are dedicating time for God, and for yourself. There are times of 'input' and times together, but otherwise your time is to spend as you wish, drawing closer to God. You may want to reflect on the material provided, to sit in silence inside or outside the church. or to go for a walk. The retreats are not completely silent, but God may get your attention more easily in the quiet, when we are open to fewer distractions.
In the winter, Travelling Light runs retreats on-line. This enables people from a much wider area to participate. We provide reflective material to help you focus on God, wherever you are, as well as joining with others on-line.

Everyone is welcome at a Travelling Light retreat. The ethos is Christian, but there is no specific denominational slant.
