God, Nature & Us

From Sunday 13 to Saturday 19 August 2023

This week has been cancelled due to lack of participants

Come recharge your batteries at 850m altitude! We’ll get immersed in nature and dig deep into God’s love for creation through walks, workshops and getting our hands dirty. We’ll learn about plants, butterflies, geology and more, and seize the day for play, rest and reflection as we take the time to connect with each other and with God.
