IN WHAT SENSE IS HEAVEN 'BETTER BY FAR'?   

26-30 June 2017

Heaven is as much a reality as our planet earth and in reality influences every aspect of our lives. This retreat is an invitation to explore the mystery of the relationship we have of heaven with earth by knowing what we know and discovering the unseen reality of the presence of heaven here on earth. It is popular to place the idea of heaven out of reach into the future. The Bible teaches us that heaven is present in the now as God longs to be in relationship with each one of us. 

Led by Revd Beverley Smith.

£309 per person, full board, residential (guaranteed single occupancy supplement £15 extra per night).

*10% discount available for individuals booking who are willing to share a twin room with another individual of the same gender.

£129 per person, non residential, includes lunch on T/W/Th and evening meals on M/T/W/Th.

Everyone has an opinion that may be based on their own individual beliefs, influences from family or even personal experience. People with belief systems may be content with vague ideas of heaven and settle for stories passed on from one to another without investigating further what they truly believe. Often our relationship with heaven sits outside of our everyday experience, which is perhaps due to our focus on being about,‘what is not in heaven’, than ‘what will be’.  

We can be transformed by engaging with our beliefs. But first we need to know what we know, dispel our myths and explore our relationship with God. How do we relate to the reality of heaven in our daily lives?

Beverley brings lifelong experience as a daughter, a sister to a brother. Also in the public sector working as a shop assistant, various professional nursing roles, Anglican Priest and also as a Registered Systemic Counsellor and Family Therapist.

Beverley is passionate about simply walking every day with God and discovering his wholeness, wellness and healing through daily encounters. Every human individual is spiritual and offers a real presence to others. Beverley is keen for everyone to celebrate their own sense of ‘being’ in life in relationship to our sense of otherness.
