Christian Writing Mini-Retreat | October 27-28, 2023

Is God calling you to write?
Do you need motivation, encouragement or space to sit down and write?

This is your chance to get away with God and be inspired through fellowship, teaching, worship and prayer. Spend as much or as little time working on your own project in the peaceful grounds of Titoki Christian Healing Centre.

The Writing Retreat starts at 10am on Friday morning. Feel free to arrive from 9.30am onwards to settle in. We will finish around 12pm on Saturday. The retreat includes:

  • Practical exercises
  • Time to write
  • Feedback & critique practice

  • Time to relax & lots of good food!


Titoki’s rooms are warm, comfortable and of  motel standard.  Some rooms have ensuites, whilst others have shared bathrooms. All have electric blankets through the winter.  Meals are healthy & delicious, made from fresh Titoki produce and will be served along with snacks, teas and coffee. Titoki can cater for specific dietery needs.
