Spring 2018

Invitation Details Transport Register Payment

The first two weekends of May are now full.
Please register now for the last two weekends in May. 

Amana Trust is happy to announce the continuation of the Weekend Retreats this year during the month of May. The weekends will begin from 5-6 May 2018, the first weekend of the month, and will overlap with the end of each One-week Training also held in May.

We would like to invite all those who would like to spend time in the Word of God and to enter into the practice of pursuing the Lord (both personally and with others). This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet others from your area who also love the Lord.

We hope that as many as possible from throughout Europe will attend one of the weekends in May. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends, family, or someone you know who would like to know the Lord more or meet with other believers. We welcome those who are 18 years old and above.

Many of those who came previously testified how enjoyable and profitable these times were, especially the times spent in the truth, meeting others from their area, blending with the full-time trainees, and entering into the practice of pursuing the Lord both personally and with others.


Saturday’s activities will begin at 11am at Bower House, joined by those who have been in the one-week training that week. After lunch there will be a time of fellowship on how we may serve the Lord according to His heart’s desire. We will have a second meeting and then a barbecue at 5.30pm followed by a sweet time of fellowship on singing hymns and spiritual songs to the Lord (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16).

On the Lord’s Day morning there will be special fellowship concerning the importance of a time with the Lord every morning. Breakfast will follow, and the Lord’s Day meeting will begin at 10am. We will conclude the meetings at 12pm, and everyone will be given a pack lunch. For those who are available, there will be a time of service in the afternoon to prepare for the following weekend


We welcome all who are 18 years or older to register. Registration is required in advance in order to ensure adequate accommodation for everyone. Once our capacity for a particular weekend is reached, registration for that weekend will need to close. Therefore, please register at least two weeks in advance for planning purposes.

Online registration is now available. You may also register by phoning us during business hours on 01708 380 301 or 0800 093 9779.


The cost for the weekend will be £20 per person and will cover accommodation for Saturday night, four meals from Saturday lunch through Lord’s day lunch, refreshments, shuttles, and course materials. For these special weekends, we are unable to receive children less than 18 years of age.


Accommodation will be provided for Saturday nights. This accommodation is dormitory-style with shared rooms and shared bathrooms. We will do our best to accommodate couples together. However, depending on availability you may be placed in separate male and female accommodation. If you would like to ensure that you stay together, you are welcome to book your own accommodation in nearby hotels (click here for nearby affordable hotels).


We ask that all those who are registered arrive at Bower House no later than 10.30am on Saturday morning. For those travelling on public transport, we will provide transportation from Newbury Park Underground Station leaving at 10am to Bower House. Return service to Newbury Park Underground Station will be provided after lunch on Lord’s Day.

Please bring this invitation to the Lord. We hope that these times will be a great encouragement to us all and provide a way for those of us who enjoy this ministry to be brought into more fellowship and enjoyment of the Word together and to meet others from our area.
