Review, Recharge and Refresh...

The challenge to 'stay' in mission is a battle that many face. 'Refresh & Retreat' will provide input, insight and support to those who are looking for some space and time to review, recharge and 'refresh' for future mission service, or transition.

Who is the course for?

This course is for those who are currently in cross-cultural service and are seeking refreshment, or those re-entering their home cultures at the end of an assignment. 

What is the programme?

This year we are offering a 'Refresh & Retreat' programme of morning devotions and evening prayer, sharing and worship. There will be opportunities for one-to-one pastoral chats and/or prayer. The rest of the time, participants are free to use the grounds, library, prayer rooms and surrounding countryside and amenities for personal retreat and refreshment time.

The programme will include:

Spiritual Life: There will be times of devotions, worship, reflection and sharing.

Pastoral Care: There will be the opportunity to talk and pray through pastoral concerns.

Free time: Your chance to use the time as you feel God is guiding you in order to rest, reflect and refresh.
