The Weekend Retreat

We will start off our pilot all together at a one-night retreat on the 15-16 June (arrival time 1/1:30pm 15 June – departure time 3pm 16 June), based in Christchurch at Woodend Christian Camp

The cost of this subsidised retreat is $25 per person. We have reduced the rate, because we appreciate you will be helping with evaluation through the pilot. Please note for this pilot retreat, we are capping the attendance at 30 people.

Some have said that Jesus was the ultimate experiential educator. He was frequently creating and making use of opportunities that could serve as a teachable moment and introduce a metaphor for faith formation.

At the Anchored Retreat we will seek to use fun, safe and grow in one’s faith games to do the same. Often called experiential learning these activities will facilitate the youth to try, experience, risk, reflect, grow and apply these same games and moments to their faith and life.
