CANCELED - Retreat 1-3 May 2020, "Make room for me in your hearts"

Welcome to share Bible, prayer and meditation at Sandvikengården

A break from everyday life

In today's society, much of our time is spent communicating with other people. The email is ringing, the phones are ringing, the radio and TV are broadcasting around the clock. The world is big and we want to keep up. Modern man is constantly connected, constantly reachable. But in the midst of this vortex of information, it is easy to lose touch with the soul.

On the retreat

Going on retreat is that for a few days shy away. Jesus sought out sometimes to places to rest and gather strength. (Mark 6: 31). At the retreat is the soul and the spiritual center of attention. Most of the time you are in silence. That way you get a chance to listen inward to their own thoughts retreat is also an opportunity to reflect on their faith and discover more of who God is. The days divided and given rhythm by means of devotions, meditation and meals. In between, there is silence and own time for reflection.



We can accommodate a maximum of 20 participants, so therefore it is important to register in time, before places run out. Deadline for registration is 25 April and made anytime via the website Here ->

Karin and Bengt Kylberg live in Karlstad and are engaged in the West Coast Church. At Sandvikengården we have been to retreat earlier.
It's a good place to stay up and listen inward. It can provide clarity and new entrances in the labyrinth of life.

Niklas Lindén

My name is Niklas Lindén and is pastor in Tallå church in Edane, which is part of the equmenia church. 1982 I meet Franciscan spirituality which became a great source of inspiration because Francisus emphasizes the joy, love and simplicity. Here comes the retreat into my life that I also encourage others to. To seek God in prayer and listen to His voice.
