Gather together with other members of the FYT Movement for a weekend retreat. The retreat will make space to go slow: creating time for connection, reflection and rest.
26-28 April 2024
Arrivals will be from 6pm on Friday night. Departures will be after lunch on Sunday.
The retreat will be hosted at The Greenhouse at Barnes Close near Birmingham. This retreat centre in the West Midlands offers cosy lounges, sprawling gardens and some friendly alpacas. FYT has been partnering with the community at The Greenhouse for a number of years now. Their vision is to be a place of peace, reconciliation and justice. They are also an LGBTQ+ inclusive venue. We are thrilled to be returning. To find out more about The Greenhouse check out their website here.
What’s on the schedule?
The Restival is all about going slow and about making space for rest. We want to invite participants into rest on this weekend – whatever that looks like for you. The retreat will be hosted by the FYT team and will include a programme of activities, reflective practices and social time. But everything will be optional and designed around the theme of restoration and peace. More details to follow. Participants will be free to engage with the retreat activities or to do their own thing.
Who can come to the Restival?
This event is for members and friends of Frontier Youth Trust. FYT is a Movement of volunteers, youth workers, supporters, project leaders, pioneers and change-makers working towards a better world for young people. We are a Movement of people who wrestle, who question, who celebrate and who mourn. This is a place for anyone who seeks justice and is looking for peace.
We are also an inclusive Movement seeking to embrace and champion those who are often marginalise by the church and wider society. All are welcome here. You can read our inclusion statement here.
What about food?
All meals will be provided. Please make us aware of any food requirements upon booking. This is also a community event, so we encourage bringing snacks and baked goods to share.
