Church Leaders' Retreat at Foxhill, Cheshire

29 Sept - 01 Oct 2021

A retreat for ordained and lay church leaders from all denominations to recharge spiritual batteries.

29th Sept – 1st Oct Led by Christopher Landau, Felicity Lawson & Jolyon Trickey BOOK HERE 

Church leaders have done a brilliant job guiding their churches through the uncharted waters of the last 18 months and most are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead. But many are tired and in need of time with God ‘in the Sanctuary’ before leading their churches and ministries through the autumn. 

This retreat will be led by church leaders for church leaders. 

The programme will be unhurried, with time to relax, walk, eat and sleep, as well as times of collective worship. 

The teaching will focus on the life and experiences of Elijah, and there will be opportunities for personal ministry as we welcome the Holy Spirit to refresh weary souls, to heal wounded spirits and to anoint us for life and ministry ahead. 

Our prayer is that this will be a transforming time ‘in the Sanctuary’, in the place where heaven and earth meet, and from which church leaders will return to their ministries deeply refreshed in body, mind and spirit. 

Location: Foxhill, Tarvin Road, Frodsham, WA6 6XB
