About the event

Participating in the Trinity

Join Donald and Janis Scott at Sister Eveleen Retreat House for this opportunity to draw aside to spend time together largely in silence, inviting contemplative reflection on the Trinity, utilising various prayer methods, Scripture readings highlighting the Trinity, as well as ‘gazing upon’ Andrei Rublev’s 15th Century icon of the Trinity, all inviting participation/communion with this glorious Trinitarian understanding and encounter with God.  Starting the evening of Pentecost Sunday and finishing just before Trinity Sunday gives a great framework for this journey!

5-day or  7-day Retreat ....your choice

Our retreat offering allows you to select either a 5-day or a 7-day experience. 

The 5-day retreat concludes on Thursday, May 23rd, at 2 pm, offering a profound immersion in the topic. For those seeking a more extended period of spiritual reflection, the 7-day retreat concludes on Saturday, May 25th, at 2 pm, providing additional moments for prayer and contemplation.

About the hosts:

Donald and Janice were both born and raised in the Dannevirke area, Southern Hawkes Bay, farming in the area before moving into a pastoral role at a local church. Relocating with their 4 boys to Christchurch in 2000, they led Northcity church until recently, now focusing on wider ministry to the body of Christ, with a passion for city-wide unity and bi-cultural reconciliation, with Donald also involved in Spiritual Direction and Janice leading the Elijah House regional team. Now the proud grandparents of 5 gorgeous grandchildren!

Cost (fully catered): 5-day retreat 540$  -  7-day retreat: NZ$750

You always have the option to arrive earlier or stay longer by booking extra nights (self-catered and guided) at Sister Eveleen. Just let us know upon registration.

Our fees are set low to encourage participation in our programme and ministry, and do not represent the true cost of the upkeep and maintenance of this wonderful historic house.

If you are able, we would welcome your additional contribution. If you would like a donation tax receipt for anything in excess of the base cost, please let us know.

On the other hand, if you'd like to attend but the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch as we may be able to assist you.
