This retreat has already started, if you would still like to take part then please contact us.

An opportunity for the mission family to process their transitions to the UK together. There will be joint family sessions and then sessions for the children and parents separately too. This IS a residential weekend but online booking is not available - please contact the office to book.

We will remember the countries where we have been and highlight both the joys and the hard times, and reflect on those. We will look at the challenge of leaving, saying goodbye and having to move on. The sadness that comes with leaving friends, pets and homes behind. We will take time to think about some of that. Then we will look at the UK, what was arriving here like? What are your dreading and what are you looking forward to?

The children and teens will use a variety of practical activities, games and crafts in this process. The adults will join them for some of those, but also have some time to talk with adult debriefers.

We hope to equip families with tools they can use together once the retreat is over, and help them to understand each other better through the process.
And of course through it all, we will see how God is working, and how he has been with us at each step of the journey.

Please note: this retreat is not a place for counselling and each family will be offerred the same amount of time for debrief. We can however point to long term therapy if needed.
