    A weekend of fellowship, recovery and spirituality for men and women in SAA


    Join us from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon for SAA meetings, meditation, fellowship and relaxation in the grounds of Douai Abbey. Our events are planned around the daily Offices of the Benedictine Monks in the Abbey, offering an opportunity to attend their services throughout the day, if you wish.

    The all-inclusive cost is

    Waged £ 175
    Un-Waged £ 90

    Accommodation is available for up to twelve guests. Places are reserved upon payment of a £30 non-refundable deposit (£15 for Un-waged). Limited bursaries may be available to those considering attending but experiencing financial hardship.   Please ask for details.  The balance will be due before the 25th March.

    The Abbey have asked that we confirm final numbers by early March.  There may be places available beyond then but a reservation is no longer guaranteed.
