Retreats for Mission and Ministry Partners

This message was added on 2022-06-15

 

Penhurst has always had a heart for mission and specialises in supporting mission partners, cross-cultural workers and full-time Christian workers from the UK and overseas.

One of the ways Penhurst provides support is through specific retreats for mission partners and Christian workers.  Spaces are currently available on the following retreats in 2022:

 

4-7 July: New Directions.  For full-time Christian workers returning to live in the UK after overseas ministry or for an extended home assignment.  The focus will be on helping `unpack` and understand the process of transition and change that is involved in re-entry, and to provide strategies to support the process with its many challenges.

7-10 July: Running the Race - Embracing our retirement years.  Helping those in full-time Christian ministry (UK and overseas) prepare for retirement and the years beyond.  It will look at what we understand by `retirement`, the Biblical approach to old age, and in particular at the spirituality of ageing.  The retreat will help planning for retirement within the next 5 years, or recently retired, to refocus their lives on discovering how God has plans for them in this next season of life.

8-12 August: Grace Space for Mission and Ministry Partners.  An extended version of the popular Grace Space retreat specifically for mission partners and those involved in full-time Christian ministry (UK and overseas). An opportunity to step aside to be with `the God of all grace`, to meet with Him where we really are in our life and ministry and to receive the deep refreshment that only He can give.  There will be time to reflect on God`s grace that enables and sustains us in the work we are called to.

12-16 September: Rooted and Grounded in Love.  Helping participants become firmly convinced at the core of their being of their identity as God`s deeply loved children, in order to become great lovers of God and those they serve.  The retreat will be based on material from David Benner`s book `Surrender to Love`, and will be directed specifically at mission partners, whether working overseas or in this country.

21-24 November: New Directions.  For full-time Christian workers returning to the UK after overseas ministry or for an extended home assignment.  The focus will be on helping `unpack` and understand the process of transition and change that is involved in re-entry, and to provide strategies to support the process with its many challenges.
