Registrations for upcoming Presbytery Prayer Retreat are now open. We hope that this will be a space that will allow us to find consolation (deep peace) rather than desolation (fear and anxiety) and help us to build our spiritual resilience. 

The retreat will be led by Rev Heather Simpson and held at Raincliff Anglican Youth Camp (note the change of location) in South-Canterbury and will run from the 14th – 16th February. (From 7pm Sunday evening to approximately 11am on Tuesday morning.) The cost for the weekend is $75 which includes food and accommodation.

Heather is trained in spiritual direction by Spiritual Growth Ministries and has been leading spiritual direction for the past 3 years. There will be some opportunities for those attending to have a 30-45 minute one on one spiritual direction session with her.
