Retreats & Away Days


GRG Experience Away Day

The GRG Experience Away Day is a bi-monthly event hosted in the grounds of the beautiful Niland Christian Conference Centre in Hertfordshire.


God’s Romantic Getaway Away, Away Days, serve as a taster to the 7-day Retreats and are a great way to embark and get support on your journey of pursuing intimacy with God. Whether you are new to your pursuit or looking to build on what you already have, this is the place to be. The Away Days allow attendees the opportunity to enter a place of spiritual rest away from their daily schedules, the noise, clutter, and constant demands of life that prohibit them from spending uninterrupted time or finding a safe place and space to be alone with God.

On the Away Days, we offer step-by-step guidance, help, and support in applying the daily practice of “Being Still” and learning to recognise God’s voice and activity in one’s life while addressing the challenges that often prevent this. I believe it is important that every child of God understands the important keys that being alone and still, before God adds to their daily Christian walk and that exploring this on a daily basis is possible regardless of who you are in your Christian walk.


Who can Attend?

The Away Days are open to anyone who frequently or periodically desires a safe place and space to be alone with God. They support individuals in need of guidance, desperate to break through the barriers that prevent them from experiencing closeness with God, hearing His voice, and understanding how to better communicate with Him. They are attended by both regular and new attendees who continue to reap the benefits as they grow stronger and deeper in their love relationship with God. 

What To Expect

The day commences with an interactive workshop where we discuss personal and generic challenges around spiritual intimacy, what is it, what it looks like, how to get started, and the common barriers we all face, silencing internal and external distractions. The teachings offer biblical, tried, tested and lived experience solutions and disciplines that will enable you to be more consistent in your daily pursuit of spiritual intimacy with God, both in giving and receiving. After lunch, the afternoon is devoted to attendees spending time alone with God in the peaceful grounds where they can incorporate the teachings of the day with one-to-one assistance should they further require it.

Our settings are always intimate and offer a place of safety to be open and honest with any questions you may have or things you wish to share, should you choose to.

The Day Pass starts from £75 and includes lunch and all-day hot and cold beverages and snacks. For an additional £25, you have access to two accountability 1-2-1 sessions, offering individuals ongoing support after the Away Day

For more information, please contact us and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

GRG 7 Day Escape To Intimacy Retreat

GRG Retreats are all about nurturing your intimate relationship with God so you can exercise Him intimately daily. They are an extended version of the Away Days allowing attendees to escape from everyday distractions that fight for our attention to a safe place of rest to spend time alone with God in a quiet, peaceful environment.

Our time, mind and emotions are taken up with so many things in life, that unless first exercised in a solitary place, the practice of being still and silencing external and internal distractions whilst surrounded by a constant fast passed world and hostile noise becomes virtually impossible.

Retiring to solitary places to be alone with God is something Jesus did frequently, something we don’t do enough of and should make an everyday part of our lives.

We invite you to come away from the demands of day-to-day life to a place of spiritual rest to be pampered, while you focus on being still and relaxed making the most of your getaway with God. Here you will be able to recline in the natural and supernatural presence of God. This is your time for one-to-one intimacy between you and God, a time to cease from mental, emotional, and physical work, and be refreshed, renewed, and rejuvenated. A time to listen and hear from God with no distractions or restrictions on your time.

Birthed from the founder and author’s personal testimony as shared in her book God’s Romantic Getaway, God’s Romantic Getaway Retreats are transforming the lives of all who attend, adding much-needed intimacy, strength, and passion to their personal Christian walk. Attendees continue to express experiencing a deeper sense of God’s prolonged peace in identifying His activity in their lives. This has allowed them to stay tuned to the sound of His voice, increased their desire to be with Him, and highlighted the value and importance of quiet time in their everyday lives which they continue to build on after leaving. Those who continue to practice meeting with God daily constantly testify how much their life has changed as a result of experiencing daily intimacy.

Many have become frequent retreaters

The All-Inclusive Retreats offer return transportation from the allocated pick-up point, luxury accommodation, gourmet food, prayer massage therapy, daily optional fitness training, early morning spiritual soaking sessions, teaching and guidance on spiritual intimacy, the practice of solitude and silence, and much, much, more.


In the words of the psalmist, “He leads me besides, still waters, He restores my soul.” GRG Retreats strip away the traditions and distractions that have taken up residence in our lives, causing us to surrender mind, body, and soul in pursuit of peace.

The Retreats are open to married couples, single men and women from 16 upwards

7 Day Retreat Reviews

“GRG provoked me in a good way to pursue God more than I did before. It became an addiction to rise early in the morning and or in the cool of the day, and it’s now become as natural as breathing; such has been the impact of GRG on my life. It’s absolutely amazing.”
Lesley Edwards, London, U.K.

“The retreat served its purpose based on the title, ‘God’s Romantic Getaway.’ Honestly, I cannot describe how I feel, but I know I have been restored to my first love, Abba Father.”
Daniel, London, UK

“My relationship with God was very up and down; now I’m looking forward to having a consistent Christian walk. It was amazing; I learned so much.”
Portia, London, UK

The Retreats have changed, transformed, and strengthened my daily walk with Father. For me, it has been life-changing
Paulette, London, UK


GRG Youth Retreat 

When it comes to young people and church, they either love it and can’t get enough or loath it and find it boring. When it comes to hearing God speak, many don’t recognise His voice, and being still is almost impossible.

The GRG Youth Retreats are the perfect solution to any young person wanting to understand God better and any parents wanting their child to grow closer to God intimately.

In one week a group ranging from seventeen to thirty, went from struggling to be still, running from God and having never recognised His voice to asking for more midnight prayer, competing to be the first down for 6am prayer, over-excited about not having their phones for the afternoon and hearing from God clearly with precision and no doubts. God is amazing!



GRG Youth Retreats Reviews  

“This Retreat Saved My Life” It may sound dramatic, but it saved my life. The highlight of my week was when I heard God’s voice for the first time. It was amazing, like a blanket wrapped around me. I can’t describe in words what GRG can do for you. You would want to be here. You wouldn’t want to leave. Harmony Rickets, London

“You need to pack your bags and get here” Tayna, London

“The week was amazing. I learned how to rest in God and have quiet time with Him. When you come on a GRG Experience, it’s about sitting with the Lord and just taking that time out that you could not do back home because of the hustle and bustle of life. We all hear God’s voice, but it’s about actively listening for Him. It’s been amazing. Worth every penny. I encourage anyone to come”. Chloe, London, UK

“The retreat served its purpose based on the title, ‘God’s Romantic Getaway.’ Honestly, I cannot describe how I feel, but I know I have been restored to my first love, Abba Father.”
Daniel, London, UK
