Out there in Him

Active retreats


Take a break from the fast flow of modern-day life! Join us on an Active Retreat and learn new outdoor skills as part of a small team. These incredible opportunities will enable you to reset your focus and priorities as you spend time “Out there in him”.

Canoe retreat in the Dordogne

New Dates coming soon

Wild Camping

There is a place waiting for you on this active retreat as we paddle down the Dordogne River and camp out on this four day trip.

Helping you get out into the beauty of the wonderful world God has given us to enjoy – to be refreshed and encouraged.

Canoeing and Comfort in the Dordogne

New Dates coming soon!

If you’d rather stay in a small French hotel in Beaulieu, and canoe 20km of this beautiful river each day, then this is the Active Retreat for you. We will be paddling down the Dordogne on this three day trip. All the fun of an A+ Active Retreat with the warmth of a cosy hotel each evening!

Daytime and evening activities

Each A+ Active Retreat features a fun, full activity programme during the day, with a short thought each evening to appreciate the multifaceted character of our Creator God, as we spend time in the wonder and beauty of His Creation ‘Out there…IN HIM’.


Booking information

We need four people for each of these retreats to run and places are limited to six people so do book earlier to avoid disappointment. We expect these retreats to fill up fast so book early for your preferred accommodation.
