Weekend Experiences 2018

These retreats are for anyone between the ages of 18-35 who wants

to explore their faith and the direction their life is taking.

Path of Life - Letting your life speak

Friday 13 – Sunday 15 April

“Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.” 

(Parker J. Palmer, Let your life speak).

This weekend is an opportunity to listen to your own experience, to sense Christ already present there, and to begin to discern how life is drawing you and calling to you.

Path of Life - A time to search and to find

Friday 11 – Sunday 13 May

"Knock and the door will be opened to you.” 

(Matt 7:7) What can I do to discover the life God wants for me?

This weekend will explore Christ’s invitation to come to know him and follow him. What does that mean for each of us? How do we begin (and continue) a journey of faith? What practical steps can we take to discover the life God wants for us and of us?

Path of Life – The Reason for our Hope

Friday 1 – Sunday 3 June

“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you the reason for your hope.” (Peter 3:15) 

What is the real reason for our hope? What enables us to be joyful, even when the situations we find ourselves in seem very far from perfect? What is this hope that Christ offer us, the path that He opens up in our life?

This retreat will focus on how we can engage with our life’s journey with an ever deepening joy and freedom?

Path of Life – Fully Human, Fully Alive

Friday 26 – Sunday 28 October

“They came back rejoicing.” (Luke 10:17)

How can I live my life with joy and a real sense of purpose?  Often we feel like running away from our humanity - it feels like an obstacle, a stumbling block. And yet the Christian message is that it is precisely our very humanity, in all its imperfection and incompleteness, that proves to be the door that leads to salvation, that opens onto the life that awaits us. 

This retreat will focus on exploring and experiencing this joyful truth for ourselves.
