Teenagers are challenged in their faith by rival activities and by the transition they need to make from a child’s faith to an adult’s. Many young people fall away at this stage and don’t allow themselves the opportunity of discovering what faith can offer.
Retreats for teenagers are run by Worth Abbey’s Open Cloister and The Wellspring Community.
Retreats in 2020 are on the weekends of 8th-10th May and 4th-6th December.
During the weekend the teenagers will have a chance to participate in prayer with the monastic community and enjoy being in the beautiful Sussex countryside. The programme will include talks, creative activities, games, discussion, drama, space for silence, stillness and thinking, sports, walks and a healthy dollop of competition

theAscent is a three-year discipleship process involving three residential weekends a year, monthly mentoring and weekly online group sessions. It is designed for young people in years 10 – 12 and is designed to take people with a real interest in their faith, helping them to make a deeper commitment and to explore who God created them to be, at the same time as making new friends and having some fun.
