Working through Grief Retreat | 9 - 11 June, 2023

We invite you to join us for a fully hosted weekend retreat at Titoki Christian Healing Centre in rural Whakatane from Friday, June 9 - Sunday, June 11.

The retreat is called "Working through Grief" and will be facilitated by Gaynor Lincoln.

About the Retreat

Working Through Grief is a contemplative, practical retreat where the Holy Spirit has opportunity to speak to each participant personally and lead them further in their grief journey. In the workshop you will learn how God uses grief as a redemptive experience, and how following him in our grief leads to rekindled hope and transformation rather than restoration. The workshop includes grounded teaching and contemplative activities and is suitable for anyone working through the grieving process. There will be a mix of activities to process your grief, group sharing and discussion, and time-out alone with the Lord to ponder what he’s saying to you.

Our Hope For You

That participants will sense the Holy Spirit revealing His redemptive truth and move closer to God, allowing them to move forward in their grief journey.

About the Facilitator

Gaynor Lincoln

I work as a part time hospital chaplain and have been involved in chaplaincy for 5 years. I was a primary school teacher for many years prior to becoming a chaplain. A close family member took his life three years ago which shook my world, and out of the spiritual and emotional growth from that experience, I wrote the book Redemptive Grief. The idea of workshops developed from finding the book was helpful to those who read it.

What is the format of the retreat?

Guests are encouraged to arrive from Friday 4pm in time to settle in their rooms before dinner at 6pm. The first introductory session will commence at 7:00pm on Friday evening and will be a time of introductions and sharing.  

The format will be a mix of teaching, group sharing and discussion, with time out alone with the Lord to ponder what he’s saying.

A late morning tea will be provided before the retreat finishes at approximately 11:30am on Sunday.
