WhY a retreat?

Our retreats have always been the place where acquaintances have become true friendships, where many have come to know God better. This year we’d love you to be a part of this story.


Date: 01-03 November 2019

Where: Le Duchet, 2 Les Pessettes, 39150 Prénovel, France (gps: 46°30'41.8"N 5°50'18.1"E)

Guest Speakers: Johnny and Julie Douglas. are looking forward to come, lead & serve us at our church retreat. They'll explore something of God's continuing activity, rooted in Acts - exploring God's missional purposes for us, in the four sessions. They'll offer a seminar track as well as the opportunity to book in for conversations as individuals or couples, so that we are better equipped and encouraged as God's loved, called & annointed ones.

Johnny's an unlikely vicar & mission leader in the Church of England, serving in the London-Kent border. He also teaches and serves in other contexts to see good nurtured and the increase of light & hope in the world, as well as undertaking some doctoral research in his very spare time. Julie has served as an adoption specialist until recently, and is a patient & frustrated football fan! They share a blend family of four young adults, and together love serving people and God's kingdom purposes through the church both near and far!
