10th - 14th July 2017 (with an optional weekend retreat from 7th - 9th July)
The challenge to 'stay' in mission is a battle that many face. 'Refresh for Mission' provides input, insight and support to many who are looking for some space and time to review, recharge and 'refresh' for future mission service.
This course is for those who are currently in cross-cultural service and are seeking refreshment, or those re-entering their home cultures at the end of an assignment.
The programme is principally an opportunity to be spiritually and emotionally refreshed, and secondly to prepare for cross-cultural service abroad or at home. The programme is flexible so that you can do as much or as little as you choose. There is the possibility to take an optional guided retreat from Friday afternoon before the programme starts on the following Monday.
Optional Guided Retreat: a time to slow down, reflect and prepare for the main Refresh week.
Spiritual Life: times of worship, reflection and Bible teaching.
Pastoral Care: the opportunity to talk and pray through pastoral concerns.
Re-entry Issues: understanding transition and gaining skills to handle re-entry into home cultures.
