Why Retreats?

‘Let us go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile...’ Mark 6:31 (NLT) Christ understood the need we have to withdraw and rest. In our hectic world, we reap tremendous benefits when we take time to withdraw to a quiet place and rest awhile – to drink deeply of God’s Word and find encouragement in the fellowship of others in the beauty of His creation.

An intentional time away in an inspiring setting; a ‘disruption of the ordinary’ designed to renew our relationship with God; to pray; to be taught from His Word in a concentrated community experience. This is a recipe for true transformation.
