The Diocese of York’s Retreat House, Wydale Hall, has published its 2024 programme, shaped around the diocesan Rhythm of Life.
Wydale Hall has been the diocesan retreat house since the early 1960s, and is considered a home-from-home to hundreds of people who come to Wydale to train, learn, relax, retreat, laugh, cry and hear God. Wydale hosts about 10,000 people a year for residentials and day events, and is a core of our diocese as a prayerful community renewing the church's mission.
Each year, Wydale offers a rich programme, and the newly published programme for 2024 reflects the diocesan Rhythm of Life. Underpinned by the diocesan vision of Living Christ’s Story, the programme follows this pattern of holy living through events are designed to help with understanding the bible better, with worship, with prayer and with learning how to be a better disciple of Jesus Christ. Most events are day-long teaching, retreat and quiet days, whilst some events are residential.
