Oasis Bereavement Retreat

Arrive 9:30 for 10am start.  Close 4:30pm
Morning & afternoon breaks plus lunch.

Led by Sheryl Roy and jill Weber. 

Where do we find ourselves in the landscape of loss and how might God meet us here? Is there a stream in the desert, perhaps an oasis to be found?

This Oasis retreat is for anyone who is bereaved, whether recently or dating back several years. In this day retreat we will create space both to name our losses and to be with the God who draws near to the broken hearted. The retreat will include group sessions, creative activities and times of individual reflection.

Sheryl Roy is a specialist bereavement midwife counsellor working at Royal Surrey.

She also leads bereavement support groups (for baby and child loss, and adult losses) and runs bereavement courses at Guildford Baptist Church for the local community. She has also published a book on baby loss which is currently being distributed to all the maternity units in the UK.

Jill Weber is the Director of Prayer and Spiritual formation at Emmaus Road Church serves on the International Leadership team of 24-7 Prayer. She is also a spiritual director, author and contributor to Lectio 365 and the leader of the Waverley Abbey Community.
