We partner with our friends from Splash! and local Churches to present Re:Fresh, an event which is open to local Christian youth groups. We encourage local youth leaders to bring their young people to Dalesdown for a couple of hours of fun, food and worship.
Dalesdown Retreat Programme
Our retreat programme runs during throughout the year. All of our retreats start at 10am and aim to end around 3pm. Coffee and tea are served from 9.45am and available throughout the day. Our guests at these events have free access to the whole of Dalesdown, meaning that you can make the most of our 8 acres of ground with inspiring views of the South Downs National Park. Staff or volunteers are always on hand to take a few minutes to chat or pray with you if you wish.
Our experienced team are also able to offer day or part day retreats for your Church or small group. Please contact us for further information.
To help with catering arrangements, booking is essential for all of our retreats. Our guests are allowed to stay at Dalesdown for tea and coffee at the end of the day, but we recognise that some guests may need to leave a little early to pick up children from school!
Breathing Space – 12th September and 16th November 2017
Breathing Space is a personal day retreat with a very relaxed feel, led by Richard and Jo Jackson. Join us for coffee from 9.45am, followed by a time of reflective worship from 10am. After that, you simply make the day your own, taking the opportunity to read, pray or reflect in the restful facilities and grounds of Dalesdown. The day concludes at around 3pm after the opportunity to share Communion. Places are strictly limited so it is essential to reserve your place through the Dalesdown Office on 01403 710712 or using our Contact Us form. Tickets cost £20 which includes a light lunch.
