Ministers Retreat March 2021
MINISTERS RETREAT – ‘Seasons’
16 – 18 MARCH, VAUGHAN PARK, LONG BAY
Host, Rt Rev Fakaofo Kaio; with a team of resource people – and it’s free!!
A retreat is a time to focus free from the distractions of daily life. The advantage of making a retreat is that we can be free from other responsibilities like work and family, for a set period of time.
Unlike a conference or seminar, a retreat is a time to relax, catch up with yourself, and hear directly from God, perhaps in ways that you may never have experienced before.
In the quiet surroundings of the Long Bay Retreat Centre you can listen, pray, walk, read, and sleep – but we also hope you will notice, wonder, and respond to what the Spirit of God opens up for you.
Contemplative resources and caring conversation will be available, but most of your time is self-guided.
No person can continuously minister to others without times of refreshment. Jesus needed times of solitude and rest, and so do we.
“Are you tired? worn out? burned out on religion?
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of Grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11: 28-30 (The Message)
