Empowered by the Spirit's Breath - An online Pentecost Retreat - 23-31 May 2020
After Easter the Lord Jesus said to the disciples: “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven. (Luke 24:29)”.

How do we wait? Who can help us to prepare to receive this precious gift that empowers us to live each day with peace and joy and freedom that nothing in the world can give us? And when we have received the Father’s gift, how do we allow it to transform us into a gift for others?

This nine-day retreat will prepare you for Pentecost and help you understand how to cultivate the gifts of the spirit in you so that your life will be a living expression of the fruitfulness of the Spirit and in turn the Father’s gift to the world.
