T3rd-5th May 2019 retreat – Faith over fear
Our next retreat theme is Faith over fear and we’ll be focusing on turning away from the lies we believe about ourselves and replacing them with God’s truth.
This time we’re travelling to a large family home near Port Patrick and Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway. This house has an usual layout but enough space for us to enjoy some fellowship, bible study and relaxation. As usual we’ll be assigning rooms and room sharing based on need and availability so if you’re planning to attend make sure you indicate if you have any requirements or preferences. The house is wheelchair accessible with 2 ground floor bedrooms (sleeping up to 3 people) however while a shower chair is available there are no grab rails in the bathrooms.
The bible study we will be working through is still being finalized as a wonderful friend is creating a bespoke one just for us. It will focus on being fearless and is definitely something you don’t want to miss. More details will be available regarding this soon.
I will also be hosting a workshop using the brilliant “Fearless Laughter” workbook sourced from the lovely Rebecca at Grace and Salt Ink. These workbooks are great for analysing your fears and working through them using biblical truth, they have greatly helped me in the past few months so I know they can make a difference for you. Every attendee with receive a workbook to take home with them.
Worship will also be led by myself, as last time. Following our theme of banishing our fears using the truth of God’s word we will be using resources from Seeds Family Worship, specifically Seeds of Courage. These are selected bible verses set to music, a great way to help you memorise biblical truths to recall later.
New for this retreat we will also be introducing morning yoga sessions. These will take place at 7am on the Saturday and Sunday and, while non-compulsory, will hopefully bring a great start to your day. We’ll be using videos provided by Grace x Strength yoga a Christian yoga group based in Australia who have kindly agreed to let us use some of their Christ centred yoga videos.
Our meals will once again be selected from the menu curated by Susannah Alexander of Nutrition with Susannah. These meals proved popular last time so you can rest assured that you’ll be well fed.
The bookstall will once again be provided by GLO bookshop in Motherwell who are happy to source things for us if they don’t normally stock it. So if there is something you would specifically like to see on the bookstall please let me know.
