About the event

Participating in the Trinity

Join Donald and Janice 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.

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, 14th August, 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, 16th August, 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 6 gorgeous grandchildren!

Cost: 5-day retreat 540$  -  7-day retreat: NZ$750 - please let us know your choice upon registering.

This retreat is fully catered and you will have your own room. 

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.
