Day Retreats

What are the Day retreats?

The next Day Retreat will be on the 7th April

The retreats  all have a variety of special moments formed with different inputs and include personal meditation, creative prayer exploration, small group work and whole community conversation.    We actively seek people from a broad variety of backgrounds and God always blesses us with the richness of gifts in the people attending.

We hope to be an authentic experience of the communion of the Holy Spirit.

Encouraging one another on our spiritual journeys




You are warmly invited to the first Retreat for 2018 at Leura Uniting Church..
Our theme will be ‘Encouraging one another in our spiritual journeys’. John Pritchard in his book How to Pray writes ‘the first rule of the spiritual journey is that we travel together.’
We will also look at the experience of trust and how this relates to encouragement. Brother Roger from the Taize community wrote: “Do we realize that what is best in each of us is built up through simple trusting? Even a child can do it.”
Retreat Team: Annie Cox, Carolyn, Rev Mel Macarthur, Bethany South, Lorraine White


Please register by Wednesday 5th April at or 0413 993 368 OR Mel Macarthur at .
