Contemplative Retreat for the Curious Seeker | August 28 - 30, 2020

Contemplative Retreat for the Curious Seeker

with Bert Schoneveld

Friday, 28 August 7pm to Sunday, 30 August 3pm

The contemplative strand amongst Christians is gaining a growing interest. The contemplative way focuses on living in the present moment and allowing God's presence to be revealed through encountering the Living God in that moment. An example in the Bible would be Elijah in the cave on Mt Horeb while in flight from Jezebel (1 Kings19).

This retreat aims to introduce participants to such aspects of the historical faith as reading the scriptures contemplatively, centering prayer, journalling, silence and encountering God in creation.

About the facilitator

The facilitator for this retreat is Bert Schoneveld. His qualifications include leading people in Transformational Prayer, practising Spiritual Companioning, leading spiritual retreats,and 30 years of pastoral ministry.
