8-12 Aug – Grace Space for Mission partners  Jack & Sandra Telfer

An extended version of Jack & Sandra`s popular Grace Space retreat specifically for those involved with overseas mission. An opportunity to step aside to be with `the God of all grace`, to meet with Him where we really are in our life and ministry and to receive the deep refreshment that only He can give.  As we approach the throne of grace we can find grace that underpins all we do, helps us to be free from the weight of expectations and reminds us of our true identity. There will be time to reflect on God`s grace that enables and sustains us in the work we are called to.

The retreat will be based on material from David Benner`s book `Surrender to Love`, and will be directed specifically at mission partners, whether working overseas or in this country.

20-24 March 2023  Working from a place of rest   Tony Horsfall

This popular retreat has helped many to find a greater balance in their life and ministry and learn how to work with God, not simply for God. Based on the story of Jesus and the woman at the well (John 4) we learn how Jesus lived and worked so that we too can minister from a place of rest in God.
