Close Enough to Call

6th September 2021, 4:00 pm to 9th September 2021, 4:00 pm


Emily Owen

From the beginning, God has called to humankind. He longs to communicate with us.

This retreat, led by Emily Owen, will be structured around times in the Bible when God draws close to people, and calls to them. It will offer space to spend time with God, inviting His still, small voice into our joys and struggles, and catching hold of his call. 

Although this is not a silent retreat, making space with God as individuals is encouraged, and there will be an area for ‘silent meals’ in the dining room for those who choose. 

Emily Owen is an author and speaker who was deafened as a young adult.  She knows what it is to be broken. She knows what it is to have life turned upside down and learn to find God in the mess. Emily has experienced illness, disability, and not being healed.  

Emily is a warm and compassionate communicator, her speaking and writing often reference personal testimony alongside revealing ‘hidden treasure’ from God.  Her heart’s longing is to make the Bible accessible for all, and to affirm individual validity within the Body of Christ.

In 2018, Emily was awarded the ACW Award for Outstanding Contribution to Christian Publishing.

Sign language interpretation will be available as required throughout the retreat.  There will also be an opportunity to book one-to-one time with Emily, which can either be with speech / lip reading or with sign language.
