The retreat is open to any chaplains across our four MAT’s or anyone with a chaplaincy role in their school.

The retreat this year will focus on The God who speaks : The Year of the Word and will be a great opportunity to spend time with other Chaplains and take some time for personal development. sign up now to avoid disappointment!

    Thank you to the Briars Team for a truly spiritual retreat! As a Lay chaplain, I found the time to just ‘be’ so very beautiful and prayerful. As well as seeing fellow Lay Chaplains and renewing friendships, I felt supported and helped to get the most out of our two days together.
    The format of the retreat was an opportunity to take a personal journey through some very difficult, personal things! There were lots of tears for me, but I felt renewed and revived by the end! I felt safe to ‘let go’ amongst trusted colleagues and friends. It struck me afterwards that that is what we try to offer our young people! I felt truly blessed to be on the receiving end of such support. Thank you all again!
