Event Details

Who is the Discernment Retreat for?

Anyone who would like to spend time in discernment:

  • those undertaking a Period of Discernment,
  • ministry candidates,
  • ministry agents (lay and ordained),

who are searching for what God is calling them to do in the next season of their life.


What to Expect?

Sessions centre around introducing (or reintroducing) some discernment practices and giving opportunity to engage with those practices.

You can also expect some teaching, an opportunity to “embrace your creative side,” significant time through the day to walk, sit, rest, communicate with God. In other words, it is an intentional time to develop and hone discernment practices in your life-long faith journey. Please don’t expect that all your discernment will be finished by the end of the retreat!
