Look at the Birds: A Birdwatching Retreat ***FULLY BOOKED***

3rd May, 4:00 pm to 6th May, 2:00 pm


**This retreat is now fully booked. Please use the form below to enquire about being placed on our waiting list.**

Jesus told his followers to “look at the birds of the air” and Mark Winter as a keen birdwatcher has spent a lifetime following that teaching. Since 2004 Mark has helped others to look at birds on his Even Sparrows retreats on Holy Island, and he continues to marvel how birds teach us about God’s love. This May we welcome Mark back to Launde for a second birdwatching retreat; last year retreatants discovered that there were many exciting birds to see, hear and learn from. Come and enjoy a time of quiet Celtic Christian worship, biblical reflections and guided birdwatching walks.

Mark’s recent book, Look at the Birds of the Air, brings to life the role of birds in the Bible. He explores their importance to individuals like Noah, Moses and Elijah and their frequent mention in prophecy, wisdom literature and the psalms. Above all, Mark considers the significance of birds like the raven, dove and hen to Jesus himself.

Early bird price: £365 if booked before 28th February 2022. Full price £385.

We want all our guests to be safe and secure while Covid remains a concern. For details of our comprehensive Keeping You Safe programme click here.
