This year, for the first time, the Chemin Neuf will welcome a FAMILY FESTIVAL on the theme of “Home”- “Home is a place where the heart is” on Saturday the 19th of August from 10am to 10pm. This day is organised in collaboration with the Catholic Diocese of Plymouth, The Anglican Diocese of Truro and Churches Together Cornwall. All of this will be possible with the help of volunteers coming from different Churches, who are already working together for this day.
During the day families will have the opportunity to spend time in the grounds of the Abbey and enjoy the numerous activities which will be available for all ages throughout the day (Historical tour of the Abbey, Arts and Craft, Indoor and outdoor activities, sports, A spiritual Journey for the family, etc...). In the evening there will be a Barbecue and the day will end with a Worship concert and a live band. Everybody will be most welcome!
Sclerder Abbey in Cornwall is a beautiful former Carmelite monastery half an hour by car from Plymouth and just ten minutes from the sea. It is a perfect place to be quiet and listen to Gods voice.
We offer Ignatian retreats for the individual or groups. Additionally CANA sessions are held for couples and children at weekends.
