We are a small group of Christian friends who share a passion for growing in our love for God and His Son Jesus Christ and seeing the fruit of the Holy Spirit increasing in our lives. We have all felt God’s leading to be encouraging others in this journey, to be persevering through the dry times and rejoicing in seasons of plenty. We worship and serve together at a non-denominational Christian community church. As a team, we have enjoyed an amazing two years facilitating single-day retreats and seeing God working in the lives of many Christians across North West NSW.
We firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the only pathway to God and spiritual growth of any kind. Jesus said:
“I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
While we are very willing to chat and pray with you, we are not trained counsellors or spiritual directors. We are not experienced in dealing with mental illness, chronic disease, addictions or serious depression. There are other Christian organisations in Australia who are more experienced in dealing with these issues who already run regular healing services and retreats.

Retreat is half an hour from Gunnedah in North West NSW. Gunnedah is a 45 minutes drive from Tamworth (the closest airport to Retreat). When coming to a retreat, make sure you have everything you need as the shops are not close by!
