Christchurch, 6 Whitewash Head Road, Scarborough, Christchurch 8081, New Zealand

About the event

Join Sister Eveleen Retreat House and Donald and Janis Scott for an opportunity to draw aside from the daily pressures of life, with our time primarily spent in silence, with rhythms of contemplative prayer and a balance of devotional input, and plenty of time to rest, pray and reflect. Considering throughout what our image of God is, how that informs how we see ourselves, and how that impacts our daily lives! 

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!
