Even Sparrows... Bird watchers

Look at the Birds on Holy Island

Date: Fri, 4th Sep 2020 16:00

Birds feature much more in the scriptures than you might suppose. These retreats are special opportunities to learn in depth about birds and what they reveal about God's love. We have guided birdwatching walks suitable for complete beginners, plus a rhythm of Celtic-style worship and reflections on some of the main birds featured in the Bible like the eagle, the dove and the raven.

Our time will be spent on and around Holy Island which in the autumn hosts considerable numbers of waders, duck and geese as well as arriving migrants from continental Europe and warblers from Siberia. In the spring we look for migrants coming north from Africa and the wonderful selection of seabirds passing offshore.

These retreats are designed both for Christians and for people sympathetic to the Christian faith who wish to learn more about birds in a place internationally famous for its birdlife and its Celtic Christian heritage.

PRICE: The spring retreats are each for 3 nights from Friday 17 to Monday 20 April and from Friday 22 to Monday 25 May 2020.

The autumn retreats are from Friday 4 - Monday 7 September and Friday 9 - Monday 12 October 2020.

£235 per person + B&B accommodation at the Open Gate
